Woman Found Guilty In Coverup Of Teen's Dismemberment

DA: Francesca Pagliasotti Helped Clean Up After Slaying Of 16-Year-Old Alicia Martinez

A jury has found a 25-year-old Denver woman guilty in the coverup of the slaying of a 16-year-old girl who was dismembered.

Francesca Pagliasotti was convicted of accessory to murder, a felony, said Denver district attorney spokeswoman Lynn Kimbrough.

Pagliasotti was accused of cleaning up the crime scene and lying to police to protect her common law husband, Edward Romero. The couple has children together.

Romero is charged with killing the teen, Alicia Martinez. Her dismembered body was found in four black garbage bags stored in a blue plastic tub that police found in Romero's basement.

According to the autopsy, she was shot twice in the head and her body was cut apart after she was dead.
