CALGARY - A 33-year-old Calgary man has been found guilty of second-degree murder in the stabbing death of his former common-law partner.

The jury reached its verdict in the trial of Kevin Rubletz on Wednesday night following about eight hours of deliberation.

Jessica Rae Newman was found dead in May 2015 just outside the city of Airdrie.

The 24-year-old woman was reported missing following her March 10, 2015, shift at a business in Calgary.

Her disappearance came one day before a hearing was to be held over the custody of the son Rubletz and Newman shared.

During the trial, the Crown said Newman had been stabbed 75 times in a vehicle after being picked up from work.
