A 39-year-old Wisconsin woman slowly murdered a wealthy friend with an excessive amount of eye drops several years ago, a jury of her peers in Waukesha County found Tuesday afternoon.

Jessy Kurczewski sobbed when the verdict was read in the courtroom, in a case overseen by Judge Jennifer R. Dorow.

After deliberating for nearly 10 hours and 49 minutes, 12 Badger State jurors concluded that Kurczewski was responsible for the death of 62-year-old Lynn Hernan, who was found dead at home on October 3, 2018. In addition to first-degree murder, Kurczewski was found guilty of two counts of theft of movable property over $10,000 but less than $100,000.
