MONTICELLO, N.Y. (AP) — A man has been found guilty of killing his estranged wife and torching her upstate New York home to conceal the crime and collect insurance money.

A Sullivan County jury found Paul Novak guilty Friday of first-degree murder, grand larceny, insurance fraud and arson for strangling Catherine Novak and then setting fire to her home in Narrowsburg.

The Times Herald-Record of Middletown reports ( ) that the verdict was reached after three days of deliberations.

The body of 41-year-old Catherine Novak was found in the basement of her burned home in Narrowsburg on Dec. 13, 2008.
