About this Article

After only three hours of deliberations, a Lake County jury found Sandra Rogers guilty of attempting to murder her ex-husband with a sledgehammer in an early-morning attack almost a decade ago. Prosecutors said Rogers was the "angry, bitter and frustrated ex-wife" who used a red sledgehammer to repeatedly strike Rick Rogers on May 19, 2003, in the bedroom of his Lincolnshire home.
