Thrice-Widowed Woman Convicted of Murdering 2nd Husband'

By KEVIN MCGILL, ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW ORLEANS Aug 12, 2016, 7:27 PM ET

A thrice-widowed woman was convicted Friday of second-degree murder in the death of her second husband in 2006 a complex case that prosecutors in New Orleans said is linked to the unsolved death of her third husband in 2011 in Mississippi.

The verdict came after prosecutors said Emma Raine plotted Ernest Smith's killing with her future third husband, James Raine, who was later shot to death himself in their Poplarville, Mississippi, home. No arrests have been made in James Raine's 2011 death, although authorities say Emma Raine is a suspect.

James Raine's adoptive brother, Alfred "Terry" Everette is serving a life sentence as the trigger man in Smith's death.

The jury's decision was unanimous. Emma Raine faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison. Formal sentencing is set for Oct. 21. Appeals are planned.
