Romero found guilty of dismembering teenager

DENVER (AP) - A Denver jury has found a man guilty of first-degree murder in the death of a teenager who was found dismembered in 2010.

Twenty-eight-year-old Edward "Tim" Romero now faces a March 4 sentencing hearing, where he is expected to be sentenced to life in prison.

KUSA-TV reports (http://tinyurl.com/bosuahj ) Romero had no reaction to the verdict handed down Monday.

Romero pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity in connection with the death of 16-year-old Alicia Martinez. He had claimed he had disassociation identity disorder and that he suffered from blackouts.

Martinez's body was found in the basement of Romero's grandmother's home in Denver in October 2010.

Her 19th birthday would have been Saturday, Feb. 9.
