Congolese man pleads guilty in US strangulation, selfie case

HASTINGS, Minnesota (AP) -- A Congolese man accused of strangling his girlfriend and taking a selfie with her corpse has pleaded guilty to murder in Minnesota.

The Star Tribune (http://strib.mn/21uLyQg ) says Marc Amouri Bakambia admitted killing Dorothy Redd in August 2014 after she ended their relationship.

Bakambia pleaded guilty to second-degree murder Tuesday after a nine-day trial.

Dakota County prosecutors say the 29-year-old Bakambia will serve a 30-year prison sentence and then be deported to Congo.

Redd's mother found her 24-year-old daughter's body in her home. Investigators say they later found a photo on Bakambia's cellphone of him lying next to Redd's body.
