A White Marsh woman will spend the rest of her life in prison for hiring a hit man to kill her husband — a man she has insisted subjected her to years of abuse. A judge handed down the sentence Monday after jurors rejected Karla Porter's claim of self-defense and convicted her in August of first-degree murder. Prosecutors have disputed the allegations of abuse by William "Ray" Porter, arguing that she concocted them to justify a cold-blooded murder. "The evidence at the trial was very clear.

A Baltimore County jury on Tuesday rejected a White Marsh woman's claim that the only way to end years of spousal abuse was to hire a hit man to kill her husband. The jury, composed of nine women and three men, convicted Karla Porter of first-degree murder in a case that tested the scope of self-defense arguments. The 51-year-old defendant stood stoically in a dark pant suit with her long red hair tightly braided as the jury foreman read the verdict, which could send her to prison for the rest of her life without the possibility of parole.

Jurors are expected to begin deliberating Monday whether Karla Porter is guilty of premeditated murder for hiring a man to kill her husband, or of a lesser charge because she was acting in self-defense. Porter, 51, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of her husband of 24 years, William "Ray" Porter. He was shot to death March 1, 2010, at the Towson gas station he owned after prosecutors said his wife offered to pay an Essex man $9,000. The hit man, William Bishop, was previously convicted in the murder and is serving a life sentence.

Accused of ordering a man to kill her husband at a Towson gas station, Karla Porter claims that she felt she had no other choice as she sought to escape an abusive relationship in which she believed her life was in danger. "Ray Porter had become verbally abusive, controlling … physically abusive," Porter's attorney, Teresa Whalen, said in opening statements Tuesday. She said Porter's husband once ground her face into her mother's headstone, telling her she should be dead, too. But prosecutors urged jurors not to lose sight of the fact that the White Marsh woman arranged the hit on her husband and tried to mislead authorities, starting with the 911 call in which she claimed that an unknown man had shot her husband and fled the scene.

Jury selection is scheduled to begin Monday in the trial of a White Marsh woman charged with ordering the death of her husband at a Towson gas station three years ago. Karla Porter, 51, could be sentenced to life without the possibility of parole if she is convicted. She had been the only defendant in Baltimore County facing the possibility of execution - but that option is gone with the state's repeal of capital punishment this year. Porter and her husband, 49-year-old William "Ray" Porter, owned the Hess gas station on Joppa Road.

A 10-hour police interview with a woman accused of orchestrating her husband's murder last year will be admitted in its entirety at the defendant's trial, a Baltimore County Circuit judge has ruled. Karla L. Porter, who initially claimed to be uninvolved in the death of her husband, William R. Porter, on March 1, 2010, at the gas station they owned in Towson, sought in a pretrial hearing last month to have the interview kept from the jury on the grounds that she had not been properly advised of her right to legal counsel.
