Denton County jury finds man guilty of plot to kill wife

Posted: Updated:

A Denton County jury has found a man guilty of attempted capital murder for hiring someone to kill his wife.

Denton County prosecutors say 54-year-old John Franklin Howard wanted to have Nancy Howard killed so that he could be with his mistress. A police affidavit filed shortly after Nancy Howard was shot in August 2012 said her husband paid a man $20,000 to kill her. The shooter was arrested.

Nancy Howard survived a gunshot wound to the face at the couple's Carrollton home, but lost her left eye.

Jurors found John Howard guilty Tuesday following a trial that lasted about two weeks. They then began deliberating his punishment.
