Illinois Teenager Found Guilty For Killing East Texas Girl

An Illinois teenager has been found guilty of murdering an East Texas girl. Today, jurors convicted Sarah Kolb of two counts of first degree murder, and one count of concealing a homicide in the murder of 16-year-old, Adrianne Reynolds. Reynolds' body was found dismembered and burned in an Illinois park last year. She had moved from Kilgore to Illinois three months before her murder. Reynolds' grandparents still live in Kilgore and have been following the trial online. They say they are relieved Kolb was found guilty.

"I don't think anyone in their right mind could do something like this, especially for the reason this girl did," said Gary Gibson, Reynolds' grandfather. "It was a little ridiculous. It doesn't make sense. That worried me the most, if someone like that was left to be on the streets because I really believe that girl would hurt someone again if she wasn't locked up." Kolb faces up to 60 years in prison. Her ex-boyfriend, Cory Gregory, will also stand trial in May for Reynolds' murder.
