STORY: Breaking News:"Lacey Spears guilty of second-degree murder, by reporter Lee Higgins, published by Lohud on March 2, 2105.

GIST: "Jurors on Monday convicted former Chestnut Ridge mother Lacey Spears of second-degree murder in the death of her 5-year-old son. Spears showed little reaction as the verdict was read.

Spears' lawyers suggested it was Nyack Hospital's treatment of the boy that was to blame for his death in January 23, 2014 death at Maria Fareri Children's Hospital in Valhalla"
