BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — A male nurse from Bridgeport was found guilty Friday of killing and dismembering his 20-year-old girlfriend back in the spring of 2013, according to the Connecticut Post.

The first two trials for Jermaine Richards, a private duty nurse, ended with hung juries. He was convicted of killing Alyssiah Marie Wiley of West Haven, a sophomore at Eastern Connecticut State University, and dumping her remains in Trumbull.

She left the campus with Richards on April 19, 2013, and was never seen again.

That day, Wiley texted friends that she had broken up with Richards and was on her way back to campus, but she never returned. Her partial remains were found 27 days later in a wooded area at the end of Quarry Road in Trumbull, about 2 miles from Richards' Bridgeport home.

No blood residue or physical evidence was presented at the trial to say where or when Wiley was killed, the Post said. Richards did not testify, the Post said.
