NEW YORK (AP) - A part-time federal court guard and retired New York City police officer has been convicted of killing his wife.

Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said Friday that Clarence Cash was convicted of murder. Cash’s lawyers haven’t immediately returned phone messages Friday evening.

Prosecutors say Cash shot his wife, Tracy Young, 13 times after they got into an argument at their Queens home on Dec. 10, 2011. The 42-year-old Young was a state tax investigator.

Cash turned himself in to police the next day.

Cash retired from the New York Police Department in 2006. He later worked on a per-day basis transporting prisoners at U.S. District Court in Manhattan.

The 52-year-old Cash could face up to 25 years to life in prison. His sentencing is set for Oct. 21.
