Sister of murdered Luxor dancer outraged over claims of self-defense

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Opening statements could begin Wednesday in the trial of a man accused of killing a Luxor dancer.

Jason Griffith is claiming self-defense.

His attorneys told prospective jurors this week that he and his ex-girlfriend, Deborah Flores-Narvaez, got into an argument in December of 2010.

Her dismembered body was found a few weeks later encased in two tubs of concrete.

Her sister and parents are in town for the trial.

Her sister Celeste Flores-Narvaez said, "However long it takes for them to do what they need to do to put him away forever, I'm fine with it. I can live with that."

Prosecutors have decided not to seek the death penalty if Griffith is convicted.
