WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP) - An Oconomowoc (oh-KAH’-noh-moh-walk) woman has been found guilty of fatally shooting her husband and hiding his body in their basement.

A jury in Waukesha (WAHK’-eh-shaw) County deliberated about six hours before returning guilty verdicts on first-degree intentional homicide and hiding a corpse Monday night.

Prosecutors argued Amy Van Wagner killed 50-year-old Stanley Van Wagner in May 2015 in a dispute over finances and then spent three days trying to make it appear he was just missing. Her husband’s body was found by a neighbor in the basement under a tarp.

The 53-year-old convict faces sentencing May 24.
