During trial proceedings, Antoine said the pair had gotten into an argument, while claiming she didn't remember killing Gargol. A passerby noticed her dead body lying on the road in Saskatoon, Canada. The police did not realize until later that Antoine had purposely left the messages to mislead the police, while her alibi was false and the story about a odd man was concocted as a diversion.

Antoine also pleaded guilty to manslaughter, but repeatedly said that she didn't remember killing her friend.

The belt's weave and color, evident in the selfie, were consistent with marks inside her friend's auto and indicated a struggle, said Ritter, a senior Crown prosecutor. Hope you made it home safe, ' in an alleged attempt to cover her tracks.

Cheyenne Rose Antoine, 21, pleaded guilty this week to killing Brittney Gargol after th epolice determined that the murder weapon is the belt Antoine is wearing in the selfie. "It's wrong and shouldn't have happened", Antoine wrote in a statement her lawyer read aloud in court.

In comments reported by CTV News, she said: "I'll never forgive myself".

In a victim impact statement, Gargol's aunt, Jennifer Gargol, expressed her sorrow at the loss.

He expected to fix her vehicle the day after she died - "the last time I would have hugged her", he said, according to the Star Phoenix.

Members of Gargol's family, have been less forgiving.

"You owe it to her". She hit Gargol and ended up strangling her.

Antoine was condemned to seven years for manslaughter.

Ritter and Watson both pointed to the killer's troubled past as a mitigating factor in the sentence.

Antoine's troubled past, which began when she became a ward of the province of Saskatchewan at age 2, factored into her plea deal and sentence. She was put into foster care when she was four years old, and endured a decade of physical and emotional abuse.

At 14, she reconnected with her mother but was exposed to heavy alcohol and drug use.

Her criminal record began with vehicle theft at age 12, two years before she reconnected with her mother, the station reported. "She loved you, she respected you and she trusted you", Wickenhauser said. She "has issues...and because of those issues she is risky", the CBC reported. The last person known to have seen her alive was her close friend Cheyenne Rose Antoine.

"Honour your friend by becoming a positive, productive woman".
