Chef Convicted of 2nd Degree Murder

In the case of a Los Angeles chef who killed his wife and claims he disposed of the body by boiling it for four days, justice has been served. After five and a half hours of deliberation, the jury convicted David Viens of second-degree murder. Viens betrayed no emotion as the verdict was read, although he faces 15 years to life in prison. He will be sentenced in November. Viens had told investigators that he slow-cooked his wife in a 55-lb pot before draining her fat and then hiding her skull in the attic of his mother’s house. When he learned he was the chief suspect in his wife’s death, Viens jumped off an 80-foot cliff.
