ECTOR COUNTY, Texas (Big 2/Fox 24) – Kevin Lee Roberts was found guilty of capital murder last week, according to a release from the Ector County District Attorney’s Office.
Officials say Roberts was convicted in the 2017 death of Ashley Williams.
Back in 2017, Roberts had been accused of stabbing Williams several times, putting her body in a duffle bag and then throwing that bag in a dumpster in Odessa, according to previous reports.
Police located Williams’ body in the area of 8th Street and Meadow Avenue. Meanwhile, Roberts was arrested just outside of Weatherford following a traffic stop by the DPS.
Roberts has since been sentenced to life in prison, according to the DA’s Office.
