Why does this article not say anything about WHY the conviction came nearly 25 years after the crime? Seems to be a pretty important part of telling the story. Weak journalism.

It's been a long time, but I am glad to hear that the law caught up with him.

Did he try the Kathleen Soliah defense? "Gee, I've been good for 20-odd years, can't you look the other way?" If only he would have been active in community theater.

What a stupid reason for killing someone - not that there is ever a good one except self defense but really? She said bad things about my associate so I whack her?
