MARTINSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - A Martinsburg man has been convicted of killing his estranged wife with a hammer.

A Berkeley County Circuit Court jury found 31-year-old Rickie Lee Greenfield guilty of first-degree murder Friday.

Media outlets report the jury did not recommend mercy, meaning Greenfield has no chance for parole. His sentencing is scheduled for April 3.

Jill Greenfield was found dead in her bed in August 2013 with severe trauma to her face and head. A blood-stained hammer was recovered from the scene.
