COQUILLE, Ore. -- A Coos County jury took less than 30 minutes to find a North Bend man guilty of murder in the shooting death of his disabled wife.

The World newspaper reports Wayne Hagner will be sentenced Feb. 3.

Hagner was arrested in July after a police officer conducting a welfare check found Anna Lee Hagner lying in a pool of blood.

Defense attorneys argued that Hagner's actions were reckless, rather than an intentional attempt to take a life.

Hagner had been convicted of crimes such as assault and harassment in the past decade, and completed drug treatment and anger management programs before the shooting.
