After 17 hours of deliberations, a Ramsey County jury reached a verdict Wednesday in the murder trial of Jeffery Trevino, who was accused of killing his wife, Kira Steger.

Trevino was found not guilty on count one, murder with intent, and guilty on count two, murder without intent.

Criminal Defense Attorney Bruce Rivers says both the defense and prosecution can take credit in the trial. Rivers said the defense did well because Trevino would be facing a much longer prison sentence if he had been convicted of intentionally killing Steger.
