Pa. woman found guilty of first-degree murder for pinning husband with car

A Philadelphia woman has been found guilty of first-degree murder for fatally pinning her husband to a wall with their car.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports 31-year-old Keisha Jones was immediately sentenced to life in prison after the jury returned with the verdict Friday.

Jones tearfully told the jury Thursday she never intended to hit her husband, Tyrone Taylor, after he got out of their 2002 Acura SUV last November following an argument.

Jones was also found guilty of possessing an instrument of crime, the Acura.
