Conviction In Anne True Murder Case

A murder case is now closed…ten years after the brutal beating of a homeless woman near Lincoln.

Closing arguments were presented in Lancaster County District Court on Wednesday.   

And after eight hours of deliberation…the jury handed down a verdict.   

They convicted  43-year-old, Todd Baker for the 1996 murder of Anne True.   

The jury found baker guilty of first degree murder in the death of Anne True.   

In 2003 Lancaster County investigator Steve Eppens re-opened the unsolved murder after witnesses came forward.    

In 2004 Baker's ex-wife Angela Hecox came forward and told authorities that she saw Baker kill true.   

Investigators say it was this frightning move by Hecox that helped capture the killer.   

43-year-old Baker is charged with beating True to death with a hammer, and then dumping her body in a field north of Lincoln ten years ago.
