Woman convicted of killing husband, hiding body
Fitchburg man charged with fraud

An Oconomowoc woman has been found guilty of fatally shooting her husband and hiding his body in their basement.

A jury in Waukesha County deliberated about six hours before returning guilty verdicts on first-degree intentional homicide and hiding a corpse Monday night.

Prosecutors argued Amy Van Wagner killed 50-year-old Stanley Van Wagner in May 2015 in a dispute over finances and then spent three days trying to make it appear he was just missing. Her husband’s body was found by a neighbor in the basement under a tarp.

The 53-year-old convict faces sentencing May 24.
