Oceanside man convicted of wife's murder

An Oceanside man has been convicted of shooting to death his second wife last year as their children were in another room.

The North County Times (http://bit.ly/zIIMe5 ) says 29-year-old Dontaye Henderson was convicted Tuesday of first-degree murder and being a felon in possession of a handgun. He faces more than 81 years in prison when he's sentenced next month.

Henderson told jurors that his wife's shooting on New Year's Day of 2011 was an accident. He fled after the shooting and was arrested four days later in St. Louis.

At the time of the shooting, Henderson was on parole for raping his estranged first wife in 2003.
