SAN DIEGO (AP) - A man has been convicted of killing a Wisconsin woman at a San Diego hotel and dumping her body in the shower.

Jason Lewis was found guilty of first-degree murder Friday in the death of 26-year-old Jhordann Rust.

Rust checked into the hotel with her fiancĂ© and got into an argument that led to her fiancĂ©’s arrest.

Prosecutors said Rust got locked out of her room and called her mother. While on the phone, authorities said the 41-year-old Lewis, who lived at the hotel, attacked Rust.

Investigators said Lewis beat Rust in his room, stuffed her body in a suitcase and dumped the body in a common shower area.

The San Diego Union-Tribune (https://bit.ly/2dq27LC ) says Lewis faces 56 years to life in prison.
