Winters Man Convicted In Wife's Murder

WINTERS, Calif. --
A unanimous jury has convicted a Winters man of murdering his wife, even though investigators never found the woman's body.

Leticia Ramos, 28, disappeared in April after filing for divorce from her husband, Felipe Hernandez.

Prosecutors said they'd found DNA evidence under a cleaned rug and a receipt from a carpet cleaning business.

Based on that evidence, a Yolo County jury found Hernandez guilty of second-degree murder.

He's scheduled for sentencing next month.
