MONTICELLO, Ill. (AP) - A 57-year-old eastern Illinois man has been found guilty in the 1990 slaying of his wife.

The News-Gazette in Champaign reports (https://bit.ly/2tRXHU4) that a Piatt County jury deliberated less than three hours Thursday before convicting Gregory Houser of first-degree murder.

Houser of Monticello was arrested last September. Monticello is about 20 mile southwest of Champaign.

Sheryl Ann Houser was 29 when her 6-year-old son found her strangled with a rope around her neck in the garage of her home near Mahomet in October 1990. Mahomet is 10 miles northwest of Champaign.

The Housers were in the process of divorcing.
