[QUOTE]SAN DIEGO, California (Court TV) -- Jurors found a woman guilty of poisoning her Marine husband with arsenic so she could spend $250,000 in veteran's benefits on luxuries including breast implants.

Cynthia Sommer, 33, was found guilty of first-degree murder, with the special circumstance of murder for financial gain. She now faces up to life in prison without parole for the murder of Sgt. Todd Sommer.

The panel of seven women and five men deliberated for about 12 hours over three days before reaching the verdict.

Sommer showed no immediate reaction, but later teared up.

Todd Sommer, 23, died suddenly in February 2002 in the home he shared with his wife, their infant son, and Cynthia Sommer's three children from a previous marriage. (Full coverage)

More than a year later, scientists found elevated levels of arsenic in Todd Sommer's tissue. His widow was charged with murder in November 2005.

Prosecutors, who had no evidence linking Sommer to the arsenic that killed her husband, focused on her alleged financial motive and promiscuous behavior.

I have read and followed this story for a while and in my own opinion I can't see how they could of convicted her without any evidence she even killed the guy. Yeah she went out and partied and had a ton of sex with many people, she got a boob job so what? So what indeed. The prosecutors had no solid evidence she did the crime so they decided to destory her image and make her look like a whore who only wanted money so she killed her husband(funny sounds like the same defense Kobe's attorney used when trying to say there was no rape because the girl was a party girl who had sex with multiple people).

So they kill her image and the jury buys it, no evidence but she is convicted of murder for means of financial gain. In my own opinion I think they ****ed up on this case and sent an innocent person to jail. Yeah she partied and got a boob job but big ****ing deal, doesn't mean she killed the guy.
