HAZEL PARK, Mich. (AP) - A Detroit-area man has been found guilty in the slaying of a 21-year-old friend.

WXYZ-TV reports that a jury convicted Jordan McClanahan of Hazel Park Friday after an hour of deliberations.

McClanahan was charged with first-degree murder and mutilation of a body.

Jessica White’s body was found last May. It was tightly wrapped in a tarp and hidden in the attic of a house in Hazel Park. An autopsy determined White of Troy had been strangled with a belt and police said her fingertips were cut off.

Investigators said McClanahan lived in the Hazel Park home.
