SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico The son of a U.S. district court judge has been found guilty of killing his wife at their home in a wealthy suburb in Puerto Rico.

Pablo Casellas Toro also was found guilty late Wednesday of weapons offenses and destroying evidence. His 46-year-old wife, Carmen Paredes, was killed in July 2012, her body riddled with about a dozen shots, including one to the forehead, forensic officials testified.

This murder case and trial has gripped Puerto Rico for the past year. Last night it concluded with the son of privilege's conviction. The perp is universally reviled on the island for always getting away with anything because dear dad always ran cover for him. Until he murdered his wife.

It was the one-armed man who did it.

“Casellas had said he was innocent and that he came home to find his wife dead and an unknown man escaping over a fence”.

Unfortunately for Casellas, and FBI agent happened to live behind that fence. He testified that he heard nine shots just before the perp left the scene to see his dad, and that he saw no one jump over the fence.

He should have studied the Van der Sloot method or the Kennedy method.

Sh!thead indeed. He shot her with an FN 5 7 pistol. High velocity, armor piercing rounds. The first shot left her paralyzed and she couldn’t even get up from the chair and run. He shot her an additional seven times, and she could only use her arms as a shield. He then finished her with a shot to the forehead.

Have they considered the possibility that she committed suicide?

12 shots; it could happen. Ask any defense attorney.
