FLORENCE, Ariz. (AP) - A man found guilty of killing his girlfriend and hiding her body underneath a trailer has been sentenced to life in prison.

The Casa Grande Dispatch reports (https://bit.ly/2sAeLNH ) Pinal County Superior Court Judge Kevin White sentenced Daniel Flomer to life in prison Monday after Flomer was found guilty of first-degree murder of Tina Eckler in April.

Eckler’s roommate found her decomposing body underneath Eckler’s trailer home on Sept. 13, 2014, a few days after Eckler was reported missing. Eckler’s roommate looked underneath the trailer after smelling a foul odor.

According to a videotaped interview with police, Flomer told investigators he “snapped” and strangled Eckler with his bare hands.

Flomer originally shoved Eckler into a closet before returning to the victim’s home days later to move the corpse.
