SALINA, Kan A Salina man has been convicted of first-degree murder in the death of a 27-year-old mother of five children.

A Saline County District Court jury on Tuesday also found Dane DeWeese guilty of conspiracy to commit murder for his role in the April 2013 death of Kristin Tyler.

Tyler's body was found in rural Salina about two weeks after her family and friends last had contact with her.

The Salina Journal reports the jury deliberated only about two hours before convicting DeWeese. He will be sentenced June 16.

Another man, Joel Heil, has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder in Tyler's death. He is scheduled to go on trial May 7.
