Guilty verdict in the case of Tyrone Delgado

There is finally a verdict in the nine week long murder trial for Tyrone Delgado. Delgado is charged in the 1999 death of former FBI secretary Melissa Mooney. A jury found Tyrone Delgado guilty. He is now facing life in prison, with no chance for parole. As he was being lead out to begin his sentence, he had some words for his ex-wife, regarding his young children. "Let them write me all right. Make sure they write me. I didn't kill nobody," said Delgado. The jury deliberated for nearly four hours, and came back with their guilty verdict around 2:45 p.m. Delgado was found guilty of murder in the first degree, as well as first degree burglary, for which he'll face 130 days in prison on top of his life sentence. Emotions were high for Delgado's ex-wife Anna Cruz, who felt nothing but relief when the verdict was read. "I feel that it's justice for Melissa and closure for myself and all the other survivors from his past," said Cruz. After the verdict was read aloud, there were hugs and hand shakes all around the courtroom. Prosecutors Ben and John David both said of all the murder cases they have tried, Tyrone Delgado was the most dangerous criminal of all. This case was expected to be finished back in the first week of June. Judge Henry said this is the longest trial he has ever seen.
