Jurors on Friday convicted a Pennsylvania man of murder for brutally and extensively beating his girlfriend — jumping on her and dropping a sofa on her body, according to The Daily Local News.

Leroy Brahm, 33, will receive a mandatory sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole for first-degree murder, but the judge at a later sentencing date will establish the formal punishments for charges of aggravated assault, simple assault, and recklessly endangering another person.

Chester County prosecutors reportedly told jurors that jealousy fueled his violent beating of Annabel Rose Meenan, 21, to death on Dec. 4, 2021. Brahm reportedly arranged for some kind of three-way sexual relationship involving another man, and they even all went on a cruise together, but the defendant became angry and controlling, believing that Meenan, who he dated since she was a high schooler, developed a relationship with the man outside of his presence.

“The Defendant unfathomably, brutally, and systematically beat his girlfriend to death during the course of a night,” District Attorney Christopher L. de Barrena-Sarobe said in a statement Friday. “The jury rightfully recognized that the Defendant was guilty of all charges.”
