Jury convicts in murder of developmentally-delayed teen

A 21-year-old Puyallup man was convicted on Tuesday by a Pierce County Superior Court jury of aggravated first-degree murder in the slaying of a developmentally-delayed teen three years ago.
Tyler Wolfegang Savage claimed the death was the accidental result of a consensual sex game. But prosecutors produced a taped confession in which Savage admitted meeting Kimberly Daily, 16, in a vacant lot on Aug. 17, 2010, and then strangling her when she tried to leave. Prosecutors said Savage choked and subdued Daily, who had the cognitive ability of an 11-year-old, then raped her and strangled her. The victim’s body was placed in blackberry bushes and partially hidden with a bicycle, prosecutors said.
The only possible sentence for Savage is life without the possibility of parole.
