GREAT BEND, Kan. (AP) _ A Kansas man has been found guilty of murder in the killing of a 14-year-old cheerleader whose charred
body was found at the asphalt plant where he worked.

The jury deliberated for less than four hours before returning their verdict Friday in the case of 38-year-old Adam Longoria. The Great Bend man was charged with capital murder in the August 2010
death of Alicia DeBolt.

To convict him of capital murder, jurors had to determine Longoria committed criminal sodomy, aggravated criminal sodomy or attempted rape during the killing.

The teen disappeared the weekend before she was due to start her
freshman year at high school. Text messages show she thought she
was going to a party. Her remains were found three days later,
burned beyond recognition.
