Woman faints after jury finds her guilty in murder-for-hire plot

She collapsed in her chair moments after the verdict was read out as a member of her legal team and a court officer reached out to help her

Gun instructor Weldon McDavid Jr, who testified as a trained marksman, shot Mr Mulvihill in the arm on September 1 several weeks before he was due to receive a $120,000 payout from Lovejoy after a prolonged and heated separation.

The father-of-one was lured to a dark dirt track and shot once in the stomach by Weldon McDavid Jr, who donned camouflage and lay in wait for the ambush.

Footage from inside the courtroom shows Lovejoy looking around the room in shock as the verdict was read out before becoming overwhelmed with the news and slumping in her chair.

Lovejoy faces 25 years to life in prison, and McDavid faces 50 to life. At some point, Lovejoy told him Mulvihill was allegedly abusing her son, and that she had been trying to get someone to do something about it for years. Paramedics wheeled Lovejoy out on a gurney and escorted her to a hospital.

After the restraining order elapsed, Lovejoy still had concerns about her estranged husband but "at no time was there a discussion (or) conspiracy to murder her husband", Patton told the jury. Sentencing is set for December 12.

McDavid - a former Marine and School of Infantry instructor from Oceanside- testified that it was the latter, that had he meant to kill the man, he could have easily done so. The bullet missed the light in Mulvihill's outstretched hand and instead struck him under his left armpit, and exited out of his back.

UCLA basketball freshmen fly home after one-week detainment in China
A senior White House official said the players had been given relatively light treatment due to Trump's intervention. The UCLA shoplifting case has reportedly reached the highest levels of both the American and Chinese governments.

Jurors deliberated for about two days before reaching the verdicts. Forewoman Reed said that it was "hard when we watched her faint".

Carlsbad police determined that the phone used to call Mulvihill was purchased by Lovejoy, and feces found in the bushes at the scene of the shooting were traced to McDavid, the prosecutor said. "But that didn't change any of our verdicts".

He and other jurors said they believed that McDavid did hit Mulvihill exactly where he was aiming - his torso. "He was lying. It was getting absurd at times".

The Marine veteran was also convicted of attempted murder, as well as an assault with a deadly weapon charge; he openly wept as the second part of the verdict was handed down, KSWB reported. He told Mulvihill that he would provide evidence showing that Mulvihill was abusive, and that he would leave that evidence on a pole along a dirt path of Avenida Soledad, near Rancho Santa Fe.

The court heard McDavid was to be paid $2,000 to kill Mulvihill.

50, are charged with conspiracy to commit murder and attempted murder in the attack on Lovejoy's estranged husband Greg Mulvihill. "It seemed too far-fetched for what actually happened".
