"She was so full of life and she has so much life left in her. Then he just took that all from her," cries Michele James.
A Facebook relationship turns deadly.
Lynn Spicer, 33, of Endicott is found dead and badly decomposed.
She was buried in a now vacant lot, where her mobile home used to stay parked in Bay City, Michigan.
This after her boyfriend, who she met on Facebook, reported her missing days after she was last seen in August.
"At about 2 o'clock in the morning, I got a phone call from Lisa Gerard, who stated she was my sister's friend. My sister and her boyfriend, Jeff, had gotten into an argument and at that point she had stormed off into the middle of the night and they hadn't seen her or heard from her since then," explained James, Spicer's younger sister.
Spicer's maiden name is Carr.
Her family says she lived in Endicott and Owego before moving to Bay City, Michigan.
She met a guy on MySpace and decided to start a new life for herself.
She had hoped to regain custody of her three children.
Although the two broke up, Spicer stayed there after meeting her current boyfriend, Jeff Julian, 22.
"I knew she was head over heels from him and that he meant the world to her," said James.
But, after three months of searching for Spicer, detectives found Julian digging up her body.
Julian is charged with open murder, as well as illegal transportation of carrying away a dead body.
"I can't see how anyone can take someone else's life. And I hope that guy suffers as much as my daughter had to," cried Spicer's mother, Donna Carr.
He faces 10 years and life in state prison if convicted.
Autopsy results are still pending.

Julian is a former marine who served in Iraq.
He has plead not guilty.
His brother also faces charges in connection with Spicer's death.
A memorial site is set up on Facebook for her.
Her family hopes to raise enough money to have her remains brought back to New York for burial.
