GLEN ELLYN, Ill. (WGN) -- A jury found 42-year-old Juan Granados guilty of first-degree murder and criminal sexual assault Thursday, according to the DuPage County State’s Attorney’s Office.
Granados was accused of sexually assaulting and strangling 36-year-old Nancy Bustos in 2011. The couple had divorced a year earlier. They had two children together.
Granados faces up to 75 years in prison.
On Oct. 16, 2011, police were called to check on the well-being of 36-year-old Bustos after she failed to contact family members for several days, prosecutors and Glen Ellyn police said.
Officers found her dead in the bathroom of the Glen Ellyn apartment she shared with Granados and their two children, prosecutors said. She had been sexually assaulted and strangled.
