According to KMOV, Oshia is considered a prior offender due to a conviction for possession of child pornography in May 2018.
In a statement, St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Wesley Bell said, "A guilty verdict and life prison sentence will not bring Kimberly Oshia back to her loved ones, but we held her murderer accountable and hopefully this brings some closure to her surviving family members and loved ones.”
