KINGSTON, N.Y. (AP) - A Hudson Valley dentist acquitted earlier this year of fatally poisoning his ex-lover’s husband has been convicted of fraud and theft.

The Daily Freeman of Kingston reports (https://bit.ly/2eRjqnO ) an Ulster County Court jury on Tuesday found 49-year-old Gilberto Nunez, of Poughkeepsie, guilty on all charges, including grand larceny, insurance fraud and falsifying business records.

The charges stemmed from an $8,400 insurance payment Nunez improperly received after a 2014 fire that destroyed a building he owned next to his dental office in Kingston. A sentencing date won’t be scheduled until a pending unrelated case is resolved.

In June, Nunez was found not guilty of murder charges in the 2011 poisoning death of 44-year-old Thomas Kolman, of Saugerties (SAW’-ger-teez). Prosecutors claimed Nunez was having an affair with Kolman’s wife and wanted her husband out of the way.
