Murder conviction in case of slain millionaire banker
RIVERHEAD, N.Y. Jurors in Long Island have convicted a man of bludgeoning a (m) millionaire investment banker to death.The conviction comes three years after Theodore Ammon was beaten as he slept, and after an eight-week trial filled with tales of adultery and family betrayal.
Prosecutors say Daniel Pelosi killed Ammon because he was angry about a proposed divorce settlement presented to Ammon's estranged wife. She married Pelosi three months after Ammon's death.
The defense suggested she may have been the killer. She died last year of cancer.
Pelosi could face 25 years to life in prison.
