The incident actually happened in North Carolina, but they brought her body all the way to Texas.

This incident happened all the way back in 2011 and it is a pretty crazy story. Amanda Smith Hayes has been convicted of helping dispose of her husband's ex-girlfriend's body. The woman that was killed and dismembered was 27-year-old Laura Ackerson. Laura was in a custody dispute with Amanda's now-husband Grant Ruffin Hayes III.

The two killed Ackerson in their North Carolina apartment. Ackerson's body was cut up with a power saw, put in coolers, and then driven in a rented U-Haul to Amanda's sister's house in Richmond, Texas. She then dumped the remains in an alligator-infested creek in Fort Bend County, Texas.

The two were found guilty in 2014. Amanda Smith Hayes was already sentenced to 13-16 years in prison, while Grant Ruffin Hayes III was sentenced to life. New details have come out that Amanda tried to tamper with the evidence which is a second-degree felony.

It looks like Amanda first tried dissolving the body in muriatic acid. When that didn't work, she dumped the body in the alligator-infested creek. Last week, a jury convicted Amanda of tampering with evidence to impair its availability in an investigation. This will add another twenty years to her sentence of 13-16 years in prison.
