August 23, 1985

A Santa Clara County Superior Court jury found Richard Bowen guilty of attempted murder in trying to kill his wife, Susan, with cyanide-laced sleeping pills. Prosecutor Lane Liroff suggested to jurors that Bowen, a former San Jose Mercury News circulation manager, had poisoned the Dalmane capsules to collect on an insurance policy he had taken out on his 33-year-old wife. Bowen, 31, faces up to 12 years in prison when sentenced Sept. 18.
