UPDATED: Eisnor Found Guilty of First Degree Murder

A Barss Corner man has been found guilty of first degree murder in the shooting death of his wife. Wayne Paul Eisnor was handed a life sentence with no chance of patrol for 25 years in Nova Scotia Supreme Court. Eisnor shot and killed his estranged wife Tina Eisnor in the parking lot of a grocery store in New Germany on June 30, 2010. Julie Illingworth, Tina's sister, says the family can now begin to fully heal.

About two dozen members of Tina's family were on hand as the verdict was read just before 6 o'clock Thursday night. It took the 12 member jury roughly 8 hours in total to come to their decision.
