Michael Lubahn Clark last week told jurors that his wife, Carol Lubahn, had disappeared after they had quarreled over selling their house. Her body was never found.

At the Torrance courthouse Wednesday, the jury deliberated for more than four hours before finding Clark guilty of second-degree murder, the Los Angeles County district attorney's office said.

Clark is scheduled to be sentenced on Dec. 12. He faces a maximum sentence of 15 years to life in state prison.
