James Keown was convicted of first degree murder of his wife. He is a former radio reporter for a station in Missouri. He poisoned his spouse with antifreeze which he put in her Gatorade. He was sentenced to life in prison with no hope of parole.
Prosecutors maintained that Keown killed his wife over several months in order to collect on her $250,000 life insurance policy. He owed a significant amount of money.
Keown’s lawyer, Matthew Feinberg, argued that Julie Keown’s death was an accident. There was no trace of antifreeze found in the Keowns’ home.
Julie’s parents as well as the Judge called the killer a bad person and an evil human being.
