Local man faces death penalty for killing wife

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A Palm Beach County man faces a possible death sentence for fatally shooting his estranged wife in 2013.

The Palm Beach Post reports that jurors found 39-year-old Elton Taylor of Boynton Beach guilty Wednesday of first-degree murder and several other charges. The panel will reconvene next week to decide whether Taylor should receive life in prison or execution.

Authorities say 41-year-old Watisha Wallace was at her parents' West Palm Beach home in October 2013 when Taylor burst in, forced her out of the house at gunpoint and shot her multiple times. Taylor also shot himself but recovered.
