LOS ANGELES (AP) - A jury has found a chef guilty of murdering his wife after he told police he cooked her body for four days in boiling water to get rid of the evidence.
The jury reached its verdict Thursday in the trial of 49-year-old David Viens.
Viens had pleaded not guilty to murdering his 39-year-old wife, Dawn, in late 2009. Her body has never been found.
In a recorded interrogation presented by prosecutors during the trial, Viens can be heard saying he cooked her body for four days.
The chef spoke to authorities from a hospital bed in March 2011 after leaping off an 80-foot cliff in Rancho Palos Verdes. Authorities say he jumped after learning he was a suspect in her disappearance.
