POMONA, Calif. (AP) — A Southern California man has been convicted of killing his wife, whose body was left at a casino.

Jurors deliberated just two hours Wednesday before convicting Tomas (Toh-MAHS') Rodriguez Infante of first-degree murder.

Infante, who's 62, faces a possible sentence of 25 years to life.

Prosecutors say Infante stabbed and beat his wife, Charita Tolentino, at their West Covina home in January of last year, then left her body in the trunk of her car in the Hawaiian Gardens Casino parking lot.

Authorities say Infante's wife vanished a day after Infante's lover broke off their affair after learning he was married.

Infante's son testified at trial that his father had confessed to the killing.
