A man was convicted Monday of killing a 23-year-old woman whose body was found in the Froehlich Farm Nature Preserve in Huntington four years ago.

A Suffolk County jury found Fernando Romualdo guilty of second-degree murder in the death of Sarah Strobel. Both the killer and the victim were from Huntington Station.

A person walking on a nature path found her body on Oct. 3, 2013, authorities have said. Romualdo had strangled the victim and was linked to the crime via DNA evidence, prosecutors said.

Romualdo was serving three years in upstate Mohawk Correctional Facility for an unrelated second-degree rape conviction at the time of his arrest last year.

He faces up to 25 years to life in prison when he is sentenced Aug. 1 by Judge Barabara Kahn.
