A jury in Raleigh has found a native Canadian accused of killing his wife in their North Carolina home in 2008 guilty.
Brad Cooper is accused of strangling his wife, Nancy, in the overnight hours following a July 11, 2008, party at a neighbor's home in Cary. Witnesses testified the couple argued at the party and appeared headed for divorce.
Brad Cooper told police his wife went for a jog July 12, 2008, and never returned. Her body was found two days later.
Jurors deliberated for three days before announcing their verdict late Thursday.
