Slain woman's daughter convicted on gun charges
ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. – Lilly Chavez was convicted on a charge of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon Friday, after a two-day trial in St Johns County Court.
The jury returned the guilty verdict after about an hour of deliberations. Chavez faces up to 15 years in prison. A sentencing date was not set.
Chavez remains a person of interest in the death of her mother, Barbara Parchem.
Parchem, 67, disappeared April 6, 2013, from her home.
A few weeks after the popular St. Johns County waitress vanished, her remains were found in a wooded area in northern Flagler County and the medical examiner ruled her death a homicide. But Parchem's killer still has not been brought to justice.
