Bob Hewson Guilty on All Counts

NOVEMBER 8, 2005 -- There is a verdict in the Robert Hewson murder trial.  Hewson has been found guilty of killing his wife, Gail Tice Hewson, at her home in Landfall.

The jury deliberated for a few hours and came back with the verdict around 4:00pm.  Hewson was found guilty of first degree murder, breaking a protective order and firing into an occupied building.  He now faces life in prison without parole.

Hewson said in court, "The arm of justice has been broken here today. I served in the Marines. I was decorated in Korea.  I can take any punishment this court gives me. It will be the worst, but I'm ready."

Gail Tice Hewson's friends and family have established a foundation to help insure no one has to be a victim  of domestic violence. Her legacy will be a positive contribution to the community, as she was a positive influence on the people who were close to her.

Inquiries and support for this foundation should be directed to:

Gail Tice Memorial Foundation,  Attn: Tracy Pope Conlan,  5046 Wrightsville Ave.,  Wilmington, NC 28403,
