A Florida jury on Saturday found millionaire James Bob Ward guilty of second-degree murder in the death of his wife, Diane, in 2009.
According to an Orange County Sheriff's Office arrest affidavit, the victim was found in the master bedroom with "a large pool of blood at the top of her head" and a handgun on a nightstand next to the bed. She was shot between her eyes.
Ward told police the couple were the only ones in the house at the time besides their four dogs.
The defense asserted that Diane Ward died after a struggle over a loaded gun, not because of any ill intent of her husband.
The prosecution highlighted Bob Ward's statements to authorities, friends and colleagues after his wife's death, saying his stories were inconsistent.
