FORT WORTH (KRLD) - Jurors have reached a verdict in the trial of a man accused of kidnapping his ex-girlfriend nearly three years ago.

Christopher Revill was found guilty in the kidnapping of Typhenie Johnson, who was last seen outside the Post Oak East Apartments on Tristan Lane in East Fort Worth on Oct. 10, 2016. The case will now move into the sentencing phase.

Prosecutors and defense attorneys finished closing arguments just before 12:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Investigators had alleged Revill intended to kill Johnson, his ex-girlfriend, with prosecutors arguing that Revill was the only person with both motive and opportunity to kidnap Johnson.

During the sentencing hearing, prosecutors may be able to raise another unsolved case. Revill was dating Taaklibh Islam before she disappeared in 2006. 

Like Johnson, she has never been seen again.
