ATLANTA (AP) — An Atlanta attorney who was convicted of murder for fatally shooting his business executive wife is to be sentenced next month.
Claud “Tex” McIver is set for sentencing May 23. A jury on Monday convicted McIver of felony murder, which carries a mandatory life sentence. It is up to the judge to decide whether McIver will have the possibility of parole.
The jury also convicted the 75-year-old McIver of aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and influencing a witness.
