Hilberling Found Guilty
A jury finds Amber Hilberling guilty of second degree murder.
The 21-year-old was convicted of pushing her husband, Joshua Hilberling, out of a window of their 25th-floor apartment in 2011.
The jury returned a recommendation of 25 years in prison after three hours of deliberation.
The other possible penalty was a charge of first-degree manslaughter.
Hilberling had testified that she never meant for her husband to go through the window, and that she shoved him in self-defense.
