SHERMAN - A jury has found a Sherman man guilty of trying to bribe a state judge in the investigation of his wife's death.

Dominic Badaracco, 77, was convicted for offering a judge $100,000 to help protect him from the investigation. A grand jury investigation into his wife Mary's death ended last year without anyone being charged.

Mary was last seen in 1984 and her body has never been found. Badaracco denies any involvement in his wife's disappearance.
