Given one last chance to address the court weighing his sentence, convicted murderer Thomas Capano was too proud to beg for his life. Tomorrow, he finds out if he will lose it. Capano, the once high-powered Wilmington, Del., lawyer convicted in January of killing his lover, gubernatorial aide Anne Marie Fahey, faces death by lethal injection or life in prison. A jury recommended by a 10-2 vote that he be put to death, but the decision rests with Delaware Superior Court Judge William Swain Lee. State law requires that the judge give "great weight" to the jury's recommendation.

WILMINGTON, Del. -- Two and a half years after gubernatorial aide Anne Marie Fahey vanished, Thomas Capano, the prominent attorney who emerged first as her secret lover and then the prime suspect in her death, was found guilty yesterday of first-degree murder. The jury's verdict, based on circumstantial evidence and reached after three days of deliberations, was heard in a near-silent yet emotion-fraught courtroom. Outside, amid TV satellite trucks, dozens of spectators applauded the decision.

WILMINGTON, Del. -- His brothers have testified. His former wife, two lovers and any number of friends, acquaintances and fellow prisoners have taken the stand. And in a sense, even a third girlfriend, the one he is charged with killing, has spoken through diary entries and e-mails that have given her posthumous voice.Yet Thomas Capano himself remains the silent center of his trial as his attorneys wind down their defense. Yesterday, as his prison psychiatrist painted a sympathetic portrait of the man accused of murdering Anne Marie Fahey, the governor's scheduling secretary, courtroom watchers were left to wonder: Will Capano himself take the stand?

WILMINGTON, Del. -- The day that trial followers have long awaited, but that his own defense attorneys feared, arrived yesterday: Thomas Capano took the witness stand in a risk-laden effort to save his own life.Capano quickly took the offensive, anxious to counter weeks of testimony that portrayed him as a control freak who juggled affairs with several women and ultimately killed the one who dared to break up with him, Anne Marie Fahey. The 30-year-old scheduling secretary to the governor vanished after dining with him on June 27, 1996.

WILMINGTON, Del. -- Both sides seem to agree: Anne Marie Fahey, the governor's scheduling secretary who vanished two years ago, was killed in a jealous rage.The disagreement is over who pulled the trigger. Was it, as prosecutors have charged, the lover she spurned, Thomas Capano?Or was it, as his defense team suggested yesterday at his trial, Capano's other lover, a 48-year-old woman who became enraged upon discovering he was involved with an attractive, younger woman?Although Capano's attorneys tried to implicate Deborah MacIntyre, with whom he continued a 17-year affair even as he romanced Fahey, her stint on the witness stand ended with no evidence presented that would have supported the suggestion that she killed her rival.
