Glendale man sentenced to prison in murder case

PHOENIX — A Glendale man accused of murder and burning and dumping the
body in the central Arizona desert has been sentenced to 25 1/2 years in prison.

Maricopa County prosecutors say 32-year-old Daniel Griffith was sentenced
Thursday.

He received a 22-year prison term for second-degree murder, two years for
abandonment and concealment of a dead body and 1 1/2 years for fraudulent use of
a credit card.

All of the sentences will run consecutively.

Griffith pleaded guilty to the charges last month. His wife, 31-year-old
Jennifer Griffith, awaits trial in the case.

The couple was arrested in February 2012 after the burned body of a missing
Phoenix man was found dumped near the White Tank Mountains.

Authorities say Daniel Griffith tried to use the victim’s credit card soon
after the killing.
