Woman Convicted in In-Law's Death
TOLEDO, Iowa (AP) - A jury has convicted an Iowa woman of first-degree murder in the death of her daughter-in-law.
Jurors took only about two hours Tuesday to convict 57-year-old Ginger Jefferson in the stabbing death of Kerry O'Clair-Jefferson.
Authorities say the 32-year-old O'Clair-Jefferson was stabbed twice in the neck Sept. 25 and died in a house in Tama.
Police found O'Clair-Jefferson's body inside the home after going there to arrest her husband, Dustin Jefferson, on a warrant.
Evidence found inside O'Clair-Jefferson's home led police to conclude that Jefferson was responsible.
Authorities also on Tuesday charged Ginger Jefferson's son, Dustin Jefferson, with aiding and abetting first-degree murder in the death of his wife.
