Frostick was charged with killing his 45-year-old fiance, back in May of 2009.

Jenkins moved to Las Vegas with hopes of making it as a singer.

Her family tells News 3, she would work as a server on the weekdays and work on her passion as a singer on the weekends. She lived with her fiance David Frostick and had broken up with him days before she was murdered.

Her father Victor remembers getting a phone call in 2009 from his panicked daughter. He listened as her daughter dropped the phone during a fight. It would be the last time he heard her voice.

“One of the last words of my daughter’s life to me before she was killed. I said what can I do? I knew she was in the room with my daughter's killer. I said ‘What can I do?’ and she said ‘Stay on the phone.’ That brought us to this day. I stayed on the phone and heard her be murdered.” Jenkins told us.

Frostick was arrested and seven long years later, his trial started to get underway after many delays.

David Frostick has a sentencing hearing on Thursday. He is facing life in prison without parole.
