Wendy Cobb found guilty of murder
10-25-2011

Wendy Cobb was found guilty at 3:34 today in connection with the first-degree murder of her husband, Mike, on April 28, 2009.
A Mayes County jury of six men and six women recommended that Cobb be sentenced to life in prison, which would make her eligible for parole in 38 years and three months.
The jury, which did not opt for life without parole, could have recommended a $10,000 fine, but recommended no fine.
Cobb, 46, of Pryor was crying when she was escorted from the courtroom through a side door.
The case was given to the jury at about 12:15 p.m. and they returned to the courtroom for the announcement of the verdict by Court Clerk Lori Parsons at 3:36 p.m.
Cobb is scheduled for sentencing on Dec. 21 at approximately 2 p.m. or 2:30 p.m., according to District Judge Terry McBride.
Relatives of Mike Cobb hugged and cried in the hallways after the verdict, but there was no outward celebration in court after the seven-day trial.
Before the jury was seated this afternoon, McBride warned the audience of appoximately 100 people to refrain from any outburst.
