Edison Burgos Montes escaped the death penalty but faces life in prison in the killing of an DEA informant, a Puerto Rican jury decided Thursday, the Associated Press reports [2].

Montes was convicted in August of killing his girlfriend, Madelyn Semidey Morales, in July 2005.

She was cooperating with a DEA probe against him, the AP reported.

Morales’ mother urged Montes to reveal where the daughter’s body is but to no avail.

A family member maintained Montes was innocent, according to the AP.
