Cheyenne Rose Antoine, 21, of Saskatoon, pleaded guilty to manslaughter Monday in the March 25, 2015 strangulation death of Brittney Jane Gargol. The body was discovered by a passerby. It was the same murder weapon that she strangled Gargol with.
But it was a photo on Facebook that ultimately punctured her story. "No doubt this young women has issues.and because of those issues she is risky".
But for two years, police had no leads.
Gargol was later found dead near a Saskatoon landfill with a belt near her body, reports the BBC. The belt in the photo was the one found near Gargol's dying body, CBC News reported.
Gargol and Antoine had posted a selfie to Facebook six hours before the young woman was killed. Cheyenne Rose Antoine would never have imagined that a selfie could come back and expose her to the police.
A Canadian woman has been sentenced to seven years for manslaughter. She was put into foster care when she was four years old, and endured a decade of physical and emotional abuse. She also allegedly told authorities Gargol went home with an unidentified man after they spent most of the night barhopping. Both girls were using alcohol and drugs on the fateful night, police said.

Airbus wins 2017 order race after last-minute sales spree
Airbus has said it will have no other choice but to halt the costly A380 programme if Emirates does not place another order. Airbus announced earlier Monday that it had delivered 718 commercial aircraft, to 85 different customers, in 2017.
Several of the family members also turned their attention towards Antoine directly.
In a victim impact statement, Gargol's aunt, Jennifer Gargol, expressed her sorrow at the loss. They believe she used it to strangle her friend.
In court, Antoine issued a statement via her lawyer Lisa Watson. She said they had got drunk which ends up in a heated argument. I am very, very sorry ... "It shouldn't have ever happened", she said in an announcement through her legal advisor.
Antoine was originally charged with second-degree murder. How could a teenager who claims to not remember the murder lay such subtle diversions and traps for the police? A 2014 study on the relationship between Facebook and murder looked at 48 Facebook related murders. It was that last profile photo on Gargol's page, however, that proved to be the break they needed.
The study out of Birmingham University found that in 22.9% of these cases, the murderer had actually announced their plans on social media before committing the murder. Maybe you'll think twice before publically RSVPing for an event on Facebook.
The police found a picture as evidence on Facebook.
