UTICA, N.Y.(WKTV)- It took an Oneida County Jury roughly three hours to find a Frankfort woman guilty of trying to kill her estranged husband.

Defendant Jenise Haddad sobbed when the jury foreman read the verdicts: guilty of both assault and attempted murder. Her family expressed similar disappointment at what they felt was a verdict reached too quickly. The prosecution said you can't put a time limit, or minimum, on jury deliberations.

"Like the judge tells the jury, it takes them as long as it takes them. I thought we presented a very compelling case," said Prosecutor Dawn Catera Lupi.

The jury apparently believed victim Todd Smith's account of the events of March 8, 2010. Smith told the jury Haddad told him to lie on a bed at his parents' Westmoreland home while she changed her outfit, and that the next thing he knew, she covered his mouth and slit his throat. Defendant Jenise Haddad's attorney put forth a justification defense, alleging that Haddad slit her husband's throat after he attacked her.

They photograph weddings and other events. They were the photographers in the last 3 weddings I stood up in for friends. They were talented! She was a lot older than him I think.
