A Prince George's County jury found a D.C. police officer guilty of two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of his mistress and their infant child, News4's Jackie Bensen reported.
Richmond Phillips killed Wynetta Wright because he was facing a paternity lawsuit and didn't want to pay child support for a baby girl he fathered out of wedlock, Prince George's County prosecutors said. A defense lawyer had countered that his client “didn't do this thing” and there wasn't evidence for a conviction.
Phillips was also convicted of other counts, including possession of a handgun and child abuse.
"Today the verdict was wonderful," Wynetta Wright's mother told Bensen, immediately after the verdict. "The jury saw right through his lies. It was all just a bunch of lies."
