    Ana Meraz called 9-1-1 from her cell phone at about 6 a.m. on May 3. She requested urgent medical attention before an unidentified man took the phone and said he had stopped to assist Meraz after seeing her vehicle weaving in traffic, Oregon State Police investigators said.

    OSP troopers and medics located Meraz's bleeding body lying beside her idling Chrysler Sebring convertible on the southbound shoulder of Interstate 5 near milepost 11. Stabbed multiple times, she died moments later, police said.

    Her suspected murderer, 31-year-old Jose Perez Silva, formerly of Phoenix, eluded police and is believed to be in Mexico. The Jackson County District Attorney's Office charged Perez with the crime and issued a warrant for his arrest. He and Meraz, who lived on Connell Avenue, were acquainted through a local church. Investigators said they did not know whether the unidentified man who took the phone was Perez.

    Jose Perez-Silva was arrested in late May of 2009 for the murder of Ana Meraz.


    During the trial, a frantic 911 call was played that captured both Meraz and Silva on tape. His defense team was arguing for manslaughter.


    Silva is found guilty for the murder of Ana Meraz.
