Man Guilty in Slayings of Brother, Sister-In-Law


HOWELL, Mich. (AP) - A 66-year-old man has been found guilty of two counts of first-degree murder in the 2008 slayings of his brother and sister-in-law in their Livingston County home.

The Livingston County Daily Press & Argus of Howell and WHMI-FM report that a circuit court jury returned its verdict Monday against Jerome Kowalski after watching 90 minutes of a recorded interview he gave to police.

Authorities say the bodies of 65-year-old Richard and 58-year-old Brenda Kowalski were found shot to death on May 1, 2008, at their home in Oceola Township, about 45 miles northwest of Detroit.

Defense lawyer Walter Piszczatowski previously said Jerome Kowalski's confession was only given after a lengthy interrogation.

Jerome Kowalski faces life in prison with no parole when he is sentenced on March 12.
