HUDSON—Warren Powell is guilty of second degree murder. Again.
At 11 a.m., Friday, April 17, after about seven hours of deliberation, the jury of five men and seven women in Mr. Powell’s retrial in Columbia County Court found him guilty of slaying his wife, Mary Ann (Tasick) Powell, on or about October 1, 1994.
The couple was living in Halfmoon, Saratoga County, at the time and Mrs. Powell, then 21, was six-months pregnant. Her decomposed body was discovered in the Hudson River May 25, 1996 by campers hiking near Gay’s Point in Stockport. She was strangled to death and stuffed in a hockey bag weighed down with rocks.
