APPLETON, Wis. (AP) - A Wisconsin man accused of fatally shooting his mother so he could collect on her life insurance policy has been convicted.
The Appleton Post-Crescent reports that 35-year-old Randal Rosenthal was found guilty Friday night of first-degree intentional homicide. The charge carries a life prison sentence.
Rosenthal claimed that his mother, 52-year-old Kathleen Remter, was fine when he last saw her after they went fishing in Buchanan.
But prosecutors say he killed his mother to collect on her $586,000 life insurance policy. Prosecutors say Rosenthal was unemployed and expecting his second child at the time.
His mother was found dead in the Fox River in July 2011. Investigators say she'd been shot in the back of the head.
