Marinette man found guilty in wife's murder


MARINETTE (WKOW) -- After deliberating for two hours, a Marinette County jury convicted 44-year-old Joseph Evans in the July 26, 2008, death of his wife, 40-year-old Dina Evans.

Jurors found him guilty of first-degree intentional homicide, meaning Evans could face life in prison when he is sentenced Dec. 1.

Assistant Attorney General David Wambach says the case was a textbook example of domestic abuse escalating to the worst level.

Defense Attorney Jon Padgham left the courthouse without making a comment and could not be reached.
