A jury found that Tracy Lampron Cloud shot and killed her husband, Philip Cloud, in their home on September 23, 2019. She was convicted of 2nd-degree murder with a firearm.

She initially claimed self-defense; however, authorities said they grew suspicious as the investigation continued.

Surveillance video, financial records, Philip’s phone and forensic evidence from the autopsy and from the scene showed inconsistencies with Tracy’s account of the incident.

According to authorities, Cloud had a financial motivation to kill her husband.

She is expected to be sentenced November 16.
