A White Settlement, Texas, man has been given life in prison for the murder of his girlfriend.
Kevin Wayne Powell, 50, was found guilty of killing his live-in girlfriend, 28-year-old Casey Rae , in 2015. A month before Nutter went missing, she had filed aggravated assault charges against Powell after he tried to strangle and drown her. Prosecutors say that he then killed her in retribution for going to police.
One of Powell’s family members testified at trial that Powell had confessed to Nutter’s murder and using several power saws to dismember her before dissolving her body. He then allegedly used chemicals to dispose of the remains.
