  • Former Texas minister convicted of killing wife (AP)

    AP - A former Texas minister was convicted late Wednesday of slipping his wife sleeping pills, smothering her to death and faking her suicide note so he could be with his mistress.

    Re: Former Texas minister convicted of killing wife (AP)

    Jurors deliberated more than seven hours before convicting Matt Baker, 38, of murder in his wife's 2006 death, which initially was ruled a suicide. Jurors were instructed that to find Baker guilty, they had to agree on two things: that Baker drugged his wife and that he suffocated her with a pillow. Baker faces up to life in prison at sentencing, which was set for Thursday. A gag order on attorneys in the case remained in effect until after sentencing.
