This just in: Judge in Black Widow trial announces some verdicts

Trial_3 Helen Golay, 77, has been found guilty of first-degree murder and conspiracy in a chilling, slow-motion plot to kill homeless men for $2.8  million in life insurance, the trial judge said this afternoon.

A Los Angeles jury convicted co-defendant Olga Rutterschmidt, 75, of conspiracy, and continues to deliberate murder charges against her. Times Staff reporters are in the courtroom working the story.
