Michael Blagg Has Been Found Guilty of Murdering Wife
During Michael Blagg's retrial by a Jefferrson County jury, he was found guilty. As of April 5, Blagg is now sentenced to spend the rest of his life in prison. He was found guilty of the following charges:
- First-degree murder after deliberation
- Abuse of a corpse
- Two counts of theft
Blagg shot and killed his wife in her sleep in 2001 and then dumped her body in the trash, according to the Denver Post.
This wouldn't be his first time being found guilty. He was tried in 2004 for the murder of his wife, but the conviction ended up being overturned. The trial was moved to Jefferson County in an attempt to find an impartial jury.
