NEVADA, Iowa (AP) — A Cambridge man has been convicted of first-degree murder in the shooting death of his wife in April.

A jury in Nevada returned the verdict convicting Jeremy Cory Friday afternoon

Story County Attorney Stephen Holmes says jurors deliberated about 4 ½ hours.

The body of 49-year-old Vallerie Cory was found in an upstairs bedroom of a house in Cambridge on April 14. An autopsy determined she died of multiple gunshot wounds. Charges were filed against Jeremy Cory the next day and the trial began about 2 ½ weeks ago.

Cory, who is 45, will be sentenced on Aug. 29.

Holmes credits Huxley police, state criminal investigators, medical witnesses and others who testified at the trial for giving him “great evidence to obtain this verdict.”
