MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa (AP) — A Marshall County jury has convicted a Marshalltown man of second-degree murder in the death of a woman whose body was found in a minivan.

The Marshalltown Times-Republican reports jurors took about three hours Tuesday before finding 40-year-old Mathew Irving guilty in the killing of 55-year-old Rebecca Hall, of Marshalltown, in July 2013. Her body was found in the back of a minivan parked on the side of a road just east of Marshalltown.

Irving testified he didn’t intend to kill Hall but was defending himself when she attacked him.

Irving had been charged with first-degree murder.

Second-degree murder has a mandatory-minimum sentence of 35 years in prison.

A medical examiner testified Hall died after being smothered.

Sentencing is set for Aug. 18.
