Ryan Duke broke into the teacher's home using a credit card before he strangled her to death.

He then got the help of his friend to transfer her body into the forest of a pecan orchard and then burn the remains over the course of two days.

Dukes' mom tried to plead for her son during the trial.

Dixie Hudson, told the judge of her son's decorated military service and asked the court to rehabilitate him.
