A Florida woman is facing the possibility of a death sentence for brutally murdering her six-year-old daughter and her father in 2015.
A jury deliberated for just 85 minutes before finding 29-year-old Cheyanne Jessie guilty on two counts of first-degree murder in Lakeland on Wednesday.
Jessie - Father - Mark - Weekly - Daughter
Jessie was accused of fatally stabbing and shooting her father Mark Weekly, 50, and her daughter Meredith before hiding their bodies in plastic bins behind a neighbor's shed in July 2015.
She reported them missing a week later and claimed that Weekly had kidnapped Meredith and taken her to Georgia.
Bodies - Victims - Point - Jessie - Detectives
The bodies were discovered soon after the victims were reported missing, at which point Jessie told detectives that she had killed her father and daughter in self defense.
Investigators said Jessie killed Meredith to appease a boyfriend who threatened to break up with her over the child's behavior. They did not offer an explanation for why she killed her father as well.
Jessie - Weekly - Meredith - Georgia - Year
Jessie initially claimed that Weekly texted her and said he was taking Meredith to Georgia because he only had one year to live and wanted to spend it with his granddaughter.
