LAS VEGAS >> A former Las Vegas performer has been sentenced to 10 years to life in prison in the killing and dismembering of his ex-girlfriend, a dancer in the racy "Fantasy" revue at Luxor.

Jason Omar Griffith was sentenced Wednesday after being found guilty of second-degree murder in May.

Griffith testified that he was fighting with Deborah Flores Narvaez in 2010 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.

The disappearance of the victim 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.
