Jury finds Mark Sievers guilty of first-degree murder in his wife’s brutal killing

Published: Updated:

In only four hours of deliberations, the jury found Mark Sievers guilty of first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder in his wife’s 2015 brutal killing.

Because Sievers was found guilty of first-degree murder, he now faces the possibility of the death penalty.

Judge Bruce Kyle has asked all members of the jury, prosecutors and defense teams to return to court Tuesday for the penalty phase.

Since Sievers has been found guilty of first-degree murder he now faces the death penalty. The jury must now hear from both sides again and decide whether he should be sentenced life in prison or to death.
