After an argument, Jason Conquet strangles Leslie Paredes Silva. To hide
his cowardly deed, he wraps her body into a blanket and hides her under
his bed in his cell.
As her body begins decomposing, Conquet decides to permanently hide
his crimes of murder, abuse of a corpse, covering up a murder. He commits
another crime by stealing brick and mortar from a prison construction project. 
Conquet entombs Leslie Paredes Silva's remains into a home made concrete
bench inside his cell.
Despite his efforts, a smell of decomposition continues to emit from his cell.
Prison officials search and discover Leslie Paredes Silva's remains.
