Guilty: Jury Reaches Verdict in Altus Murder Trial

The jury in the case against an Altus man accused of stabbing a woman to death has reached a verdict.

Forty-six-year-old Manuel Daniel was found guilty of first degree murder for stabbing 49 year old Melissa Bost, an Altus mother of three, in February 2012.

The jury is recommending life in prison. Formal sentencing is set for March 4.

A witness, Alicia Rosales. says while waiting for Bost to deliver crack cocaine to Daniel's home, Daniel and Rosales's friend Alex Castillo, planned to rob Bost of her money and drugs, because they couldn't pay Bost for the cocaine.

Rosales says Castillo hit Bost with a crow bar and Daniel stabbed Bost with a knife at least five times.
