Sentencing Day In Dancer Murder/Dismemberment

Jason Griffith Convicted Of 2nd Degree Murder

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A former Las Vegas Strip performer convicted of killing and dismembering his dancer ex-girlfriend in 2010 faces life in prison at a sentencing hearing that began at mid-morning Wednesday at the Regional Justice Center in downtown Las Vegas.

Jason Omar Griffith was found guilty of second-degree murder in May.

Griffith testified that he was fighting with Deborah Flores Narvaez and held her around the neck when he thought she was reaching for a gun. He says he panicked when she died and asked his roommate to help dispose of the body.

Flores was a dancer in the racy “Fantasy” revue at the Luxor. Her disappearance drew intense attention for almost a month before Griffith’s housemate, Louis Colombo, led police to her dismembered remains in tubs of concrete in a vacant downtown house.
