Wife's lover convicted in slaying of her husband; she pleaded guilty earlier


WHITE PLAINS, New York — A 62-year-old New Yorker has been convicted of murder in the love-triangle killing of a suburban cab driver.

The Westchester County district attorney says John Murray of Newburgh was found guilty Thursday in the killing of Terrance Camper.

Camper was shot in the head on Oct. 3, 2012 in his taxi in Peekskill.

Prosecutors said Murray and Camper's wife, Beatrice Camper, had an affair and plotted to kill Terrance Camper for his life insurance money.

Beatrice Camper pleaded guilty in February to second-degree murder and testified against Murray. She admitted helping Murray find her husband on the day of the shooting. Murray's lawyer blamed her for the killing.

Murray could be sentenced to life in prison. He has spent decades in prison for other killings.
