UPDATE: Minnesota man convicted of killing his wife

Posted: Updated:

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.

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.
