(LAS VEGAS, KXNT, A.P.)–Louis Colombo, the 34 year old one-time roommate of murder defendant Jason Griffith, told a jury how he witnessed Griffith strangle his dancer girlfriend Deborah Flores Narvaez in 2010.

The star prosecution witness recounted that Griffith then decided to put the woman’s body in a large bin, then purchase mixing materials and put the body in cement. During his 90 minutes of testimony Colombo said the package of bin and concrete was so heavy–an estimated 900 pounds–that neither knew how to discard of it.

Colombo says the bin had been used to house the pet snakes the two kept.

Griffith has pleaded not guilty. He could face life in prison if convicted.
