FOND DU LAC, WI (WHBL) - A Fond du Lac man has been convicted of killing his wife. Jurors convicted 36 year old Jason Anderson Monday on charges of first-degree intentional homicide, and possessing a firearm as a previously-convicted felon. A sentencing date was not immediately set. Anderson faces a mandatory life prison term, but the judge can set an eligibility date for a supervised release. Prosecutors said Anderson shot and killed his 33 year old wife, Nicole, while she was sleeping at their home last November. He then fled, but officers tracked the use of his A-T-M card and he was arrested two days later at a hotel in Alabama. The state called over 30 witnesses during the two-week trial, while the defense didn’t call any. Anderson’s lawyer had claimed the shooting was an accident, but jurors didn’t buy it.
