Rhonda Castro fell to her death while hiking on the Eagle Creek Trail in the Columbia River Gorge in Oregon on March 16, 2009 with her boyfriend, Stephen Nichols.
Her last words to her grandmother and aunt were, “He is either going to give me a ring or throw me off a cliff.”
Nichols was originally charged with murder, but eventually pleaded guilty to criminally negligent homicide and coercion in May 2017. He was sentenced to three years of probation, with credit for 19 months of jail time.
The case will be featured on The Real Story with Maria Elena Salinas, which will air Monday at 10 pm ET on Investigation Discovery.
