RENO, NV - A Washoe County jury has convicted Timothy Morgan for killing Eric Preimesberger in 2010.
The prosecution rested Thursday morning, and the defense immediately rested without offering any evidence or further questioning anyone. The prosecution had spent about two and a half days presenting its case. Monday morning, both sides presented closing arguments, then handed the case to the jury, which quickly came up with the verdict of guilty of second-degree murder.
Morgan was accused of killing his sister's husband, Eric Preimesberger, in 2010, while she watched and then helped clean up. She testified as a material witness, and was not charged with a crime.
