A woman stole a memory card from a truck. The gruesome footage is now key to an Alaska murder trial

ANCHORAGE, Alaska - A woman with a lengthy criminal history including theft, assault and prostitution got into a truck with a man who had picked her up for a ''date'' near downtown Anchorage. When he left her alone in the vehicle, she stole a digital memory card from the center console.

Now, more than four years later, what she found on that card is key to a double murder trial set to begin this week: gruesome photos and videos of a woman being beaten and strangled at a Marriott hotel, her attacker speaking in a strong accent as he urged her to die, her blanket-covered body being snuck outside on a luggage cart.

''In my movies, everybody always dies,'' the voice says on one video. "What are my followers going to think of me? People need to know when they are being serial-killed.''
