FRANKLIN COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Police said Friday they now have forensic evidence ready in the case of a Franklin County murder.

Officials said the autopsy results confirm Lesley Plott's death was, in fact, a homicide. Her manner of death was cited as "incised wounds to the neck."

Police also said they received DNA results from evidence found at the crime scene. They show that the DNA belongs to Plott and her estranged husband, Angel Campos Nava, placing them both at the scene of the crime.

Officers found 25-year-old Plott's body in a ditch on north Jackson Avenue in Russellville back in February. Investigators said Nava left her body there, and then attempted to kill himself. He was treated and later released from the hospital for self-inflicted stab wounds.

Nava remains behind bars in Franklin County without bond.
