It took a Milwaukee County Circuit Court jury just two hours of deliberations to find the defendant guilty at the end of a two-week trial.
Prosecutors had told the court 43-year-old Kris Zocco killed Kelly Dwyer five years ago while they were having sex. Zocco is scheduled to be sentenced in December, but he is already in prison of a child porn conviction. Dwyer was missing for 19 months until her body was found in a Jefferson County field in May 2015. Zocco admitted the two did cocaine together and had sex, but he maintained the 27-year-old woman left his apartment the next morning.
