A Texan man who claims that a demon had possessed him to kill his girlfriend before covering up her murder has been sentenced to 75 years in prison on Wednesday after being found guilty of her murder.

Guy Wayne Lynch, a 52-year-old U.S. Army veteran who was also president of a criminal motorcycle gang, had claimed that a demon had possessed him and his 21-year-old girlfriend Tia Spearman when he had killed her by shooting her in the head, according to Focus Daily News.

Lynch had claimed that he and Spearman were living a “life of sin” during this time and that he had shot Spearman after seeing demons inside her. He then loaded up her body to the truck and drove away to drive out any spirits that may have remained before shooting her in the head again, Law&Crime reported.

After that, Lynch claims that he was going to kill himself in the next few days due to the demons inside him, but that he instead accepted Jesus Christ inside of him and attempted to right the path of his life.

In spite of this claim, an investigation found that Lynch had actively covered up Spearman’s murder after the fact. He was throwing away her things and shredding her documents and had cleaned up the blood in his truck after dumping her body in a rural area near some hog trappers.

He also told his son that he had killed Tia Spearman due to an argument where he felt like she changed her personality and got threatened by that. His son also testified that Lynch had thrown away the murder weapon at a nearby body of water.

The jury of the case found Lynch guilty of the murder, and he would not be eligible for parole until 30 years have been served in his sentence.
