TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas man has been found guilty of strangling a 39-year-old woman to death and setting her car on fire.

A Shawnee County District Court judge convicted 30-year-old Andrew Charles Redick on Tuesday. He was found guilty of premeditated first-degree murder and arson in the 2013 death of Lena Keithley.

Maintenance workers found her body November 15 in a room at the Country Club Motel in Topeka. A coroner says she died due to strangulation causing a lack of blood flow to the brain.

Redick elected for his case to be heard by the judge rather than a jury. He's scheduled to be sentenced in October.

The Keithley family says the verdict is "sound and just."
