Guilty verdict in Mo. murder-for hire

In St. Louis, two men have been found guilty of a murder-for-hire from 1992, the Post-Dispatch reports. That's the year that Danny Coleman was beaten to death and set on fire so his wife, Karen Coleman, could benefit from his life-insurance policy. The bitter irony: Karen, who set the plan in motion, is probably going to get 20 years because she testified. The two killers, James K. Kornhardt and Steven A. Mueller, face a good shot at life without parole.

Hat Tip: Many thanks, Pat!
