Kalac found guilty of first-degree murder

PORT ORCHARD — David Kalac, on trial in Kitsap Superior Court for the first-degree murder of Amber Coplin, has been convicted by a jury April 19.

Kalac, 35, was charged with killing the Port Orchard resident in her apartment on Nov. 3, 2014.

The case gained national notoriety due to Kalac’s posting of photos of the woman’s body on an internet message board.

The jury of 12 also found the defendant guilty of premeditated murder, and their decision will allow Superior Court Judge Jeanette Dalton to sentence Kalac beyond the standard sentencing range.

They deliberated just a day and a half after being handed the case.
