A Pottawattamie County jury has convicted a Boone woman of second-degree murder in death of her husband.
The jury, which started deliberations on Friday, returned the verdict against Jessica Hill on Monday. She had been charged with first-degree murder. Hill's trial was moved to Council Bluffs because of pretrial publicity.
Hill faces 50 years in prison. A sentencing date wasn't immediately set.
Hill's husband, Michael, was shot to death in May 2007 while working on a sheep farm in Ogden.
Jessica Hill admitted having an affair with Daniel Blair, who was convicted of first-degree murder in the case. Another man, Aron Moss, who was accused of helping in the killing, was convicted of second-degree murder.
