LAS VEGAS (AP) — A former Las Vegas Strip performer convicted of killing and dismembering his dancer ex-girlfriend in 2010 faces life in prison at a sentencing hearing.

Jason Omar Griffith was found guilty of second-degree murder in May and is scheduled to learn his fate Wednesday morning.

Griffith testified that he was fighting with Deborah Flores Narvaez and held her around the neck when he thought she was reaching for a gun. He says he panicked when she died and asked his roommate to help dispose of the body.

Flores was a dancer in the racy "Fantasy" revue at the Luxor. Her disappearance drew intense attention for almost a month before Griffith's housemate, Louis Colombo, led police to her dismembered remains in tubs of concrete in a vacant downtown house.
