By Sam Walker on September 29, 2012A Currituck County woman was found guilty Friday of the first-degree murder of her husband over two years ago.
A jury took less than two hours to return their verdict against 40-year-old Lateisha Askew Jandreau.
She was convicted of shooting to death Paul Jandreau inside their Brumsey Landing home in late-June 2010.
His body was found in a storage container in the garage during a search by Currituck deputies, who found her hiding in a closet.
She was given an automatic sentence of life without parole under state guidelines, since prosecutors did not seek the death penalty.
Jandreau’s attorney told Superior Court Judge Jerry Tillett that she intends to appeal the verdict.
