Minn. man convicted of killing wife

October 2, 2013

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A jury has convicted a St. Paul man accused of killing his wife in a jealous rage and dumping her body in the Mississippi River.

Jurors Wednesday convicted 39-year-old Jeffery Trevino on one count of second-degree murder. But Trevino was acquitted on a second count that alleged he intended to kill his 30-year-old wife, Kira Steger (STEG'-ur).

Steger's body was found in the river in May, more than two months after she disappeared.

Prosecutors alleged that Trevino was angry that his wife was having an affair and wanted a divorce. The defense attorney contended the forensic evidence did not add up.
