Marinello guilty, awaiting sentencing

by Mary Tutwiler

After two years awaiting trial, and two weeks of testimony, it only took two hours on Saturday for a jury to declare Vince Marinello guilty of killing his estranged wife, Liz Marinello. The New Orleans sportscaster, who has been under house arrest during this time, is now locked up in the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center, awaiting sentencing. The mandatory punishment for second degree murder is life in prison without parole. 24th Judicial District Judge Conn Regan, who tried the case, will sentence the 71 year old Marinello in January.
