A California jury has found a restaurant chef guilty of killing his wife and boiling her body to get rid of the evidence.

FOX News Radio's Jessica Rosenthal has more from Los Angeles:

David Viens was found guilty of second degree murder. The trial relied mostly on recorded interviews investigators did with him. he said he suspected his wife of stealing money from his restaurant. They fought and he bound her and duct-taped her mouth shut before going to sleep. When he woke up, she was dead. He says he panicked, put her body in a large drum, and boiled her for four days to get rid of the evidence. When he found out he was a suspect in her death, he jumped from an eighty foot cliff, and when in the hospital, ended up telling detectives what happened. He faces 15 years to life when sentenced in November.
