Jury finds Marinello guilty of murdering wife

LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - A jury in Lafayette, after brief

deliberations, found former television sports reporter and radio

talk-show host Vince Marinello guilty of murdering his estranged

wife.

The 71-year-old Marinello was on trial for the murder of Liz

Marinello, who was gunned down on Aug. 31, 2006. The jury

deliberated about an hour, following a 12-day trial that included

testimony from Marinello.

He will receive a mandatory sentence of life in prison.

The jury got the case Saturday after closing arguments and final

instructions from the judge.

Prosecutors contended Marinello planned the homicide well in

advance, allegedly donning a disguise on the day of the shooting

that included a fake beard and mustache.
