Jason D'Avolio, a Rome man accused of killing his wife, Kerrilee, in 2019, has been found guilty on second-degree murder and concealment of a human corpse charges Thursday.

An Oneida County jury needed about 90 minutes to reach its verdict.

D’Avolio was originally brought into police custody as a suspect in the case. When authorities first met with him, they said he told them he discovered his wife dead from a gunshot wound in a bedroom inside their home.

D’Avolio admitted to wrapping her body in a bed sheet before disposing it in a large trash bin in Rome, according to authorities. He was later indicted for her murder.

Kerliee's body was found the day after her death in an Oneida County landfill in the town of Ava. 

D'Avolio's defense Wednesday described him as a family man, claiming that his wife took her own life due to depression. They went on to say that D'Avolio even helped police find her body and the rifle that was used in her death.

Prosecutors claimed the defendent lied to police for hours, in what they call a "campaign of deception."
