Cheyenne Rose Antoine, 21, pleaded guilty to manslaughter for the March 2015 slaying of 18-year-old Brittney Gargol in a Saskatoon, Saskatchewan courtroom Monday, the paper reports. "It shouldn't have ever happened", she said. The cause of death was strangulation. The now convicted killer said she hit Gargol and then strangled her with the belt. "It shouldn't have ever happened", she said in a statement through her lawyer.
It was while trawling Facebook that they saw Antoine wearing the murder weapon in a selfie and she became a suspect. Antoine had attempted to cover her tracks by writing, "Where are you?" Now a Facebook selfie has proved that right as it was used as key evidence in the investigation of a killing.
Ritter said the Facebook comment showed a deliberate attempt by Antoine to dupe investigators about her involvement, with a conveniently time-stamped message of concern. The police found that the belt Cheyenne was wearing in the picture was the same as the one used to strangle Gargol, which resulted in her death.The police found that the belt Cheyenne was wearing in the picture was the same as the one used to strangle Gargol, which resulted in her death. She says that she doesn't remember strangling Gargol to death but she doesn't dispute that she did indeed kill her.
Antoine also reportedly lied to police and told them that she was with Gargol the night of her murder but left to go visit her uncle.
According to BBC, Antoine has pleaded guilty and been given 7 years in prison for manslaughter.

"She knows the family would like an explanation, a reason, but unfortunately she can not provide that", her lawyer, Lisa Watson, told the court. I'm really, really sorry.
The photo was not the only evidence prosecutors presented to undermine Antoine's stories about her actions on that fateful day. She said she couldn't recall the killing, but doesn't dispute that she killed her.
This put her on the radar of investigators, who found the selfie, and eventually arrested her previous year.
Gargol's father, Everett Hillbom, said in a statement that he was angry and sad that Gargol's life was cut short.
