Timothy "Tim" W. Bliefnick, a former participant on the game show Family Feud who became famous for his contentious remark about marriage, has been found guilty of first-degree murder and home invasion in the killing of his estranged wife, Rebecca Bliefnick, on February 23.
Bliefnick is set to be sentenced on August 11 and could face life imprisonment.
The jury in Quincy, Illinois deliberated for nearly four hours before reaching a verdict. Bliefnick's defense attorney plans to appeal the decision, expressing disappointment with the outcome but acknowledging respect for the jury's decision.
Rebecca Bliefnick was discovered shot to death in her home by a family member after she failed to pick up her children from school. At the time of her death, the couple was going through a divorce.
Tim Bliefnick's conviction comes three years after his notorious appearance on Family Feud, where he made a controversial comment in response to a question about wedding mistakes. The audience reacted strongly to his answer, leading Bliefnick to adjust his stance and add that he loved his wife before making the remark.
