A onetime Aspen, Colo., socialite was found guilty of killing her ex-husband with a car bomb 18 years ago in order to collect on a $2 million life insurance policy, which authorities say she used to finance a life of jet-setting and avoiding arrest.

Pamela Phillips, 56, was found guilty of first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder in the death of Gary Triano by a jury in Tucson that deliberated for 13 hours before announcing its verdict Tuesday afternoon to close out an eight-week trial.

Phillips showed little emotion when the verdict was read. Members of her family gasped, while Triano’s family hugged and smiled.
