(Forsyth, MO) -- A jury in Taney County finds Paula Hall guilty of murder in the beating death of Freda Heyn of Oldfield.
The murder trial began Monday. The jury reached a verdict shortly before 9:00 pm Wednesday after deliberating for more than four hours.
Heyn went missing from her home in Oldfield in November of 2003. Her skull was found the following spring in the Mark Twain National Forest near Chadwick.
Hall was accused of hitting Heyn repeatedly on the head with a golf club, killing her.
A judge will sentence Hall on April 3. She faces 10 to 30 years, or life in prison, for the second degree murder conviction.
