Man guilty of shooting wife’s boyfriend, setting fire to his body
A man authorities say shot his estranged wife's boyfriend in the head, then set fire to his body on the bed where the couple consummated their affair for more than a year was found guilty of murder and several other crimes Tuesday, NorthJersey.com reports.
According to the report, guilty verdicts against Sui Kam “Tony” Tung were delivered on 11 counts — including murder, arson, weapons offenses, desecrating human remains, hindering apprehension by concealing or destroying a handgun and computer data, and stalking.
The report says cheers erupted from the spectator’s gallery, where Cantor's family and friends were situated. Tung shook his head and stared sternly as the verdicts were read, the report said.
Tung faces life in prison on the murder count and will be sentenced next year.
The report notes authorities had no direct evidence: no weapon, no DNA and no fingerprints. But prosecutor's presented circumstantial evidence and argued that Tung was the only person with the motive to kill Cantor in the way he did.
