Former Coach David Temple Found Guilty of Killing His Wife


Former Alief Hastings football coach David Temple has been found guilty of killing his then-wife Belinda, who was pregnant with their second child.

The jury sent out the verdict Tuesday afternoon, after spending Monday night deliberating.

This is Temple's second trial before a jury.

He was convicted several years after his wife was found dead inside a closet at their home.

She was killed with a shotgun.

He was given a retrial when it was found the prosecution had withheld evidence that would have benefited the defense.

Prosecutors say Temple wanted out of his marriage, so he killed his wife, Belinda, in 1999 and staged a break-in.

Temple served nine years in prison before he was granted a new trial because evidence wasn't turned over to his attorneys.
