Pastor arrested for murdering wife who wanted to divorce him

Stevens County retired pastor has been convicted of killing his wife by shooting her 10 times in 2009 after she told him she was leaving him.

The Spokesman Review reported that a jury convicted 70-year-old Craig R. Cosby of first-degree murder Friday for killing 53-year-old Susan M. Cosby.

Sentencing has been set for April 17. Cosby faces a minimum of 25 years and up to life in prison.

He was arrested in the front yard of his home in Marcus, a small town along the Columbia River in northern Stevens County. Investigators say Cosby shot his wife 10 times with a .40-caliber handgun.
