JEFFERSON, Wis. -- A judge in Jefferson County today convicted a Palmyra man in the death of his girlfriend.
David Throm argued the anti-depressant Paxil led to his aggressive behavior.
Judge William Hue said he believed Throm argued with the victim, Colleen Wilkes, last June, then used a restraint maneuver he learned as a corrections officer to kill her.
The victim's body was found July second in a wooded area in the Town of Palmyra.
Hue said Throm had the ability to determine right from wrong, as evident in his botched suicide attempt following Wilkes' death.
Throm showed no emotion when the judge convicted him of first-degree intentional homicide.
A sentencing date has not been set.
