Chef Convicted of Killing, Cooking Wife

Boiled her for days to eliminate evidence


LOS ANGELES—A jury has found chef David Viens guilty of murdering his wife after he told police he cooked her body for four days in boiling water to get rid of the evidence.

The jury reached its verdict Thursday in the trial of 49-year-old David Viens.

Viens had pleaded not guilty to murdering his 39-year-old wife, Dawn, in late 2009. Her body has never been found.
