Facebook selfie showing murder weapon leads to killer

A selfie posted on Facebook showing Cheyanne Antoine, 21, wearing a black belt eventually led to her being convicted for killing Brittney Gargol. Antoine pleaded guilty to killing Gargol two years ago in Saskatoon. Gargol was strangled to death and was found "unresponsive" by the side of a road. Antoine's belt was found near her body.

Just hours before the incident took place, a selfie was posted on Facebook showing both Antoine and Gargol together. The photo showed the belt that was found near Gargol's body. As part of her plea, Antoine took responsibility for Gargol's death, but said she did not remember killing her. Antoine was sentenced to seven years in jail for manslaughter.
