MCCURTAIN COUNTY, OK -- After an 8 day trial a McCurtain County man has been found guilty of his wife's murder eleven years ago, although her body has never been found.
A jury convicted 39-year-old Jerry Meek of first degree murder and recommended a sentence of life in prison with the possibility of parole.
The conviction was made possible by a new DA willing to try the case without Hope Meek's body.
It took a jury over six hours of deliberations today to reach a guilty verdict.
Sentencing is set for December 11th.
