A gruesome homicide investigation carried out by Regional Police has ended with a guilty verdict.

The Record reports 46-year-old Glenn Bauman was found guilty of two counts of first-degree murder on Friday, July 12.

Bauman was accused of killing his common-law wife, 47-year-old Linda Daniel and her 13-year-old daughter Cheyenne.

Linda and Cheyenne went missing in July of 2011. Family members reported them missing in 2015, after no one had heard from either of them for four years.

Waterloo Regional Police say they received information in connection to the investigation in August of 2015, and on August 19, 2015, Regional Police and RCMP arrested Bauman, who was living in Valleyview, Alberta. 

Regional Police began searching Bauman's former home on Hessen Strasse near St. Clements, in Wellesley Township.

Weeks later, Inspector Michael Haffner with Waterloo Regional Police told 570 NEWS: "there were human remains recovered not only on the exterior of the property, but also inside as well."

Haffner says Cheyenne was described as a "normal, 13-year old girl" and was "an avid horseback rider."

Her mother, Linda Daniel was described as "a stay at home housewife."

Bauman was a truck driver by trade and was unemployed at the time of his arrest in Alberta. 

Sentencing is expected to take place on August 29.

First degree murder convictions carry an automatic life sentence with no chance of parole for 25 years, however he could face consecutive sentences for each murder.
