    A 19-year-old woman was convicted Spet. 19 of murdering her roommate in their University of Arizona dorm room by stabbing her 23 times.

    Galareka Harrison made no expression as the jury’s verdict was read in Pima County Superior Court. She was convicted of first-degree murder in the death of 18-year-old Mia Henderson, a fellow Navajo tribal member from northern Arizona. She was also found guilty of three counts of forgery and one count of identity theft.
