Officials said 39-year-old Cornel Myers was found guilty Monday after a trial.
According to evidence presented at the trial, Myers had been in a relationship with Danielle Fasciocco, who was 29 years old at the time of the murder.
Officials said that in the weeks leading up to her death, Fasciocco had tried ending the relationship.
During the last three days of their life, Fasciocco had repeatedly told Myers to leave her alone. She ultimately refused to take his calls or respond to his text messages.
The evidence established that Myers had entered Fasciocco's home around 10:20 p.m. in September 2018 and viciously attacked her with a knife, striking her throat and stabbing her numerous times.
Myers had previously been convicted of strangulation in another case in 2015.
Sentencing for Myers is expected on Jan. 13, 2023.
