Robert Jarrett Jr. was convicted Tuesday of murdering his wife, following a trial in which prosecutors described him as a "cold-blooded killer" who allowed his sons to walk over her body buried beneath their backyard shed for two decades. Howard County jurors handed down a guilty verdict on one count of second-degree murder after deliberating into the night, bringing an end to a years-long investigation. Prosecutors, who had pushed for a first-degree murder conviction, said they would seek the maximum penalty of 30 years in prison at Jarrett's sentencing, scheduled in August.

When Joppatowne resident Debbie Beall got word that her great-uncle could be the World War II airman whose body was found intact and frozen in a California glacier recently, her son had a question about his relative. "Was he a caveman?" Beall recalls her son, 8-year-old Joey Kozlowski, saying. Relatives and descendants of four World War II soldiers have been holding their breath since October, when hikers found a body encased in a glacier in the Sierra Nevada. It was flown to Honolulu, where military forensic scientists have determined the body came from a plane carrying four soldiers that crashed in 1942.
