The verdict comes after three days of testimony in Judge Joseph Kirby’s courtroom.

The jury deliberated two hours before returning the verdict, according to court officials.

Sentencing phase for Froman, who could receive the death penalty, will begin Thursday morning.

Froman’s killing of Thomas came after he shot and killed her son, Eli, in her Mayfield, Ky. home, then forced her into his SUV. It ended with Froman shooting himself in the leg and shooting Thomas three times as police closed in on the vehicle on Sept. 12, 2014.
