A Marathon County jury has convicted a woman of fatally shooting her husband 15 years ago.

Sixty-six-year-old Cindy Schulz-Juedes was found guilty late Tuesday of being a party to first-degree intentional homicide and resisting or obstructing an officer.

Kenneth Juedes, a pharmacist, was 58 when he was shot twice on Aug. 29, 2006 at the couple’s home in the town of Hull.

Prosecutors say Schulz-Juedes was motivated by money, including numerous insurance policies on Juedes that totaled more than $900,000.

The defense blamed business associates for the slaying because the couple had filed a lawsuit against them claiming fraud.
