Casper Murder Trial Ends with Guilty Verdict
Laramie, Wy – A jury in Casper has convicted a man charged with the first-degree murder of his wife.
David Bush was accused of killing his wife, Lynn Bush, who disappeared in 1990. He was charged last year, after investigators said D-N-A evidence linked him to his wife's death. No body was ever found.
Prosecution witnesses say Bush talked about burying bodies, committing the perfect murder and killing Lynn Bush.
But on the stand, Bush said those comments were fabricated and maintained his innocence.
He maintains his wife went to get milk one afternoon and he never saw her again. He says he called police the day after her disappearance to say he'd found the pickup she was driving at a local grocery store parking lot.
