A judge has found a Bangor woman guilty of murder for killing her husband in a jealous rage. WZON-AM reported that Judge E. Allen Hunter accused Roxanne Jeskey, 50, of ‘‘monstrous savagery’’ when he gave his verdict Friday afternoon. Police said Jeskey used weapons that included a box-cutter, plastic baseball bat, and pliers to kill her 53-year-old husband, Richard, in 2011. His naked body was found in a bathtub the day after the killing. The medical examiner said he was beaten and strangled. Attorneys used an insanity defense in the trial, saying Jeskey suffered from seizures and psychiatric disorders. She faces 25 years to life in prison.
