A Widefield woman has been found guilty of killing her husband.

Sandra Barajas, 52, appeared in a Colorado Springs courtroom on Friday afternoon to hear her verdict.

Barajas was silent when the verdict was read, and members of her family burst into tears.

Her husband, Miguel Barajas, 47, was found dead inside his home in February of 2013.

Sandra's daughter, Dawn Richburg, 33, had called police, saying they were burglarized.

When police arrived, they found the door open and items missing from the home. Investigators later ruled the death a homicide, and both women were arrested.

A third suspect, Tommy Wright, 34, was also arrested in connection with the case. He was a family acquaintance. Wright pleaded guilty earlier this month, and faces three to four decades in prison.

Richburg remains in jail. She will appear in court in May.
