A New Jersey man has been convicted of fatally stabbing his ex-wife 84 times and covering her face with a pig mask.
Jurors in Morris County deliberated about three hours over two days before reaching the verdict on Wednesday.
The Star-Ledger of Newark reports 66-year-old Anthony Novellino sat still with a sad expression on his face when the verdict was read.
Prosecutors say Novellino attacked his ex-wife, Judith, at their home in June 2010. They had recently finalized their divorce, and Judith was packing items to take to her apartment when she was stabbed.
Judith Novellino, 62, was a teacher at Morris Catholic High School in Denville.Their adult daughter found her body.
Anthony Novellino was captured several days after the killing in Washington state, where he fled to meet a woman he had been communicating with online.
He faces at least 30 years in prison when he's sentenced on Sept. 12.
