Klamath Falls, Ore. – Sheyanna Lisa Ray stood accused of murdering and mutilating David White.
On the morning of July 28, she pleaded guilty to the crimes during a settlement conference.
“Miss Ray did plead guilty to murder, and to abuse of a corpse,” said Eve Costello, Klamath County District Attorney.
Ray was arrested in November of 2016 for the murder of Klamath Falls resident David White.
D.A. Costello said Ray killed White, and tried to dispose of his body behind a home in the Mills Addition. “She took a cord, she strangled him, left the body in the house for a couple days, and then chopped it up and attempted to burn it.”
Costello added a tentative sentencing date has been set for August 14th. “She will be receiving life with a minimum of 25 on the murder.”
Ray will serve an additional 7 months in prison for abuse of a corpse.
The proposed sentencing date may be changed to allow the victim’s family to attend.
