    Jurors Convict Army Veteran of Killing, Burying Wife
    FILE: Luc Tieman

    A jury has swiftly convicted an Army veteran accused of killing his wife and burying her body behind his parents' home.

    Luc Tieman took the unusual step of presenting his own closing argument Monday, telling jurors he didn't kill "my beautiful wife." He said there were "alternative explanations" to the state's evidence.

    Jurors deliberated for less than an hour.

    There's no sentencing date.
