A North Carolina jury has found a man guilty of chopping up a man and putting his body in cement-filled tubs in 2013.

News outlets report an Onslow County jury returned the verdict Thursday in the murder trial of 38-year-old Carleton Davis, who was on trial in the death of Sheldon Prawl back in 2013. Davis was also found guilty of concealment of a death.

The judge in the case sentenced Davis to between 38 and 47 years in prison.

Officials say Prawl was last seen on Halloween 2013 leaving the Jacksonville home of his girlfriend, who is Davis' sister.

Prawl's body was found dismembered in two tubs filled with cement in a Detroit, Michigan garage in 2014. Davis was charged the following year.
