Tracey Grissom found guilty of murder in 2012 shooting death of ex-husband in Tuscaloosa

Tracey Grissom was found guilty of murder Thursday in the 2012 shooting death of her ex-husband, Hunter Grissom, at a boat landing on Lake Tuscalosoa.

{}TUSCALOOSA, Alabama -- Tracey Grissom, the Northport woman accused in the shooting death of her ex-husband in 2012, was found guilty of murder by a jury Thursday.

The jury deliberated for around 90 minutes before announcing its decision. Grissom said during testimony Wednesday that she shot her estranged husband, Hunter Grissom, in self defense. Defense attorneys for the 32-year-old woman claimed their client was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder after being beaten and sexually assaulted by the victim.

Prosecutors argued that Grissom was a cold-blooded killer who shot the man in an effort to collect a $100,000 life insurance policy.

Grissom will remain free on bond until her sentencing date, which has been set for Sept. 2 at 2 p.m. She faces between 10 years and life in prison.
