Anchorage Jury Convicts Jimmy Korkow of Murdering His Wife
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - An Anchorage jury has convicted a man
of murdering his wife.
The jury deliberated for three hours yesterday (Monday) before
finding 37-year-old Jimmy Korkow guilty of stabbing Teresa Korkow
in 2005 in their south Anchorage home.
The couple's three daughters were at home when the woman was
killed. She was found wrapped in bedding with knives protruding
from her body.
Prosecutor Alan Goodwin says Korkow stabbed his wife 62 times
and used three knives.
The defense argued that Korkow had been drinking and snapped.
Korkow faces up to 99 years in prison. Sentencing is in March.
