BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. — A jury in Breckenridge convicted a Summit County man of killing his wife. Dale Bruner was found guilty of second-degree murder in the death of Stephanie Roller-Bruner.

Her body was found in the Blue River after a 3-day search that started shortly after Thanksgiving 2010. She had been beaten and strangled.

The jury took about three hours to reach its verdict Friday.

Dale Bruner, a wildlife photographer, was also convicted of first-degree assault and tampering with physical evidence.

Stephanie Roller-Bruner had filed for divorce a few weeks before her murder.
