Amy Johanna Wright died Christmas Eve, bringing to a close a long, sad saga which began in February 1994.
Wright, who was 22 at the time, apparently resisted advances made by 19-year-old Jamie Smith at a home at 178 Crowder Street where Wright lived with a roommate.
Smith beat and strangled Wright in an upstairs bedroom and apparently thought she was dead.
