A jury convicted a man of killing his ex-girlfriend Monday.

The jury ruled that Scott was guilty of first-degree murder, use of a weapon to commit a felony and tampering with physical evidence.

During the trial, prosecutors alleged there was overwhelming evidence that Scott stalked and murdered Allen in 2022 before fleeing the country.

As Cari’s loved ones left the courtroom Monday, they said they’re glad the trial is over.

Her ex-husband, Brett Allen, said it’s been tough on him and his son.

“He’s been my rock through this,” Brett said. “For what he’s had to go through and how he’s come out of it, nothing short of a miraculous miracle.”

Friends like Dawn Gilbert said they are thankful for the outcome.

“Justice was served today, I feel good about this,” Gilbert said.

Prosecutors laid out the case against Scott, saying he waited for Allen in her home after following her while she was on a date. Prosecutors said Scott drove from Topeka, Kansas to Nebraska, followed Allen through SnapChat maps, then waited for more than an hour in her home.

Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine said it was an open and shut case.

“There wasn’t one thing, there was just a myriad of things that the story he presented was made up,” Kleine said.

The defense alleged Scott and Allen had recently broken up, and when Scott went to talk to Allen at her home in November 2022, something happened, he acted in self-defense and ran in panic — not premeditation.

Scott took the stand during the trial, and called this a “tough story to swallow,” saying Allen, pulled a gun on him. He said, the two struggled over it and the gun went off, killing her.

“That didn’t fly, obviously, with the jury they didn’t believe it and neither did we,” Kleine said.

Cari’s loved ones said listening to the defense was hard.

“It was so ludicrous, it was almost comical in some parts of it,” Brett said.

Cari’s former brother-in-law, Mike, said Scott got what he deserved.

“Cowards are dangerous and that’s what this guy was,” Mike said.

Despite the conviction, Brett said his son is still left without a mother.

“Justice is kind of funny, because you’re not bringing Cari back, there really is no justice,” Brett said.

Scott’s presentence investigation is scheduled for May 30.
