An American dentist faces the death penalty for killing his wife while on safari in Africa in 2016.
Lawrence Rudolph, 67, was charged in the shooting death of his wife, Bianca Rudolph, 34, after a three-week trial in Denver.
The 60-year-old was also found guilty of mail fraud.
Prosecutors were able to prove Lawrence Rudolph’s plan to touch his wife’s insurance policy to start fresh with his 20-year-old mistress.
In 2016, authorities bought the killer’s version, saying his wife accidentally shot herself in the chest while quickly handling the weapon. They believed the man who said there was no reason because he was an open couple. Lawrence Rudolph also indicated that the insurance proceeds will be placed in a trust for his children.
However, the investigation resumed a few years later when Lawrence Rudolph was taken into a restaurant during an argument with his mistress.
“I killed my wife for you,” he said, according to the Toronto Sun.
The prosecution proved at trial that the bullet that killed the woman was fired from a distance of more than two feet.
Mistress is innocent in this case.
