Police found additional body parts in buckets at a car wash, WCHS-TV reports. Argie Jeffers allegedly asked a man to throw the buckets away, but the man saw the body parts and called 911.
According to a criminal complaint obtained by WCHS, Jeffers killed the victim because she had stolen drugs that he kept in the buckets. Jeffers was reportedly arrested near 17th Street and 8th Avenue.
On Friday, Oct. 14, Jeffers was found guilty of first-degree murder and concealment of a human body, WCHS reports. It took the jury just over an hour to deliberate, according to WSAZ-TV.
Jeffers faces life in prison for the first-degree murder charge and one to five years in prison for concealment of a deceased body. He remains held without bond in the West Virginia Regional Jail, records show.
