Indiana man, 20, convicted in ex-girlfriends killing
VALPARAISO, Ind. ó A northern Indiana jury has convicted a man in his ex-girlfriend's fatal shooting following a nearly monthlong trial.
The Porter County jury found 20-year-old Dustin McCowan of Wheeler guilty of murder late Tuesday night in the September 2011 killing of 19-year-old Amanda Bach.
Friends of the slain woman shouted "Remember Amanda" outside the courtroom following the verdict, while McCowan closed his eyes and sat down after the verdict was read. A judge set McCowan's sentencing for March 28.
Chief Deputy Prosecutor Matt Frost tells The Times of Munster he's gratified by the verdict.
Bach's mother, Sandy Bach, said she and her husband were pleased that the verdict provided justice for their daughter.
Bach's body was found about 300 yards from McCowan's home.
