Rebecca, a 27-year-old Australian, was the first woman to be arrested for the crime of “man-handling” a corpse in North Korea.
The murder, which was carried out in June of this year, was recorded on a camera by a female security guard who was allegedly employed by a North Korean prison service.
She then used the footage to smuggle the body to South Korea for the funeral of her boyfriend, who died in November 2016.
It was later discovered that she had used her boyfriend’s body to smuggles it into South Korea.
Now, a South Korean court has sentenced Rebecca to 25 years in prison.
According to the South Korean newspaper JoongAng Ilbo, Rebecca was found guilty of “personally harming” the corpse of her dead boyfriend.
She was also convicted of possessing a firearm for the purpose of committing a crime and possessing explosives for the purposes of committing crime.
Rebecca is currently in custody and has been sentenced to 25 to 25.5 years in a North Korea prison.
