Nancy Raney knew all along that her daughter, Cari Farver, didn’t all of a sudden leave her family willingly.

Farver was a loving and hardworking mom — she rarely missed the sports games or band concerts her son, Max, was involved in.

She didn’t post expletives or threaten others with misspelled rants, as her online persona suddenly did.

That was Shanna Golyar, who brutally killed Farver in November 2012 and posed as Farver for years in fake emails and Facebook accounts to cover up the murder.

And on Wednesday, Raney said, everyone learned the truth.

“This morning, finally, all of that came to a head,” Raney said in a phone interview hours after the verdict. “She’s got her name back. It’s not tarnished.”

Douglas County District Judge Timothy Burns found Golyar guilty of first-degree murder and second-degree arson Wednesday morning, after 10 days of trial. She will be sentenced to life in prison in August.

Golyar killed Farver after Farver spent the night at the apartment of the man both were dating.

Burns said Golyar spun a “twisted plot of lies, deceit and impersonations through digital messaging” to keep Farver alive online and distract authorities.
