SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - A Georgia man has been found guilty of killing his estranged wife inside her Syracuse apartment nearly 30 years ago.

The Post-Standard of Syracuse reports (https://bit.ly/1uCgDUw ) that an Onondaga County jury found 62-year-old Ronald Meadow guilty Thursday of second-degree murder. They deliberated 6 ½ hours before rendering a verdict in the 1985 strangling of Colleen Meadow.

Prosecutors say Meadow hog-tied Meadow and strangled her. The body was found after she didn’t show up for work.

Authorities say DNA evidence led to murder charges against Ronald Meadow, an auto plant worker who was living in Dallas, Georgia, when he was arrested last December.

Meadow’s lawyer questioned the accuracy of the DNA evidence and the statements of a now-retired police officer who worked on the case.

Sentencing is Dec. 12.
