Jurors came to a quick verdict Tuesday in an Oshkosh murder trial. It didn’t take the jury much to decide that 30-year-old Samson Gomoll killed his girlfriend last December. Forty-two-year-old Stacey Strange was found dead in the upper-level apartment they shared.
Gomoll’s trial got underway Monday morning, and he took the stand to claim that he shot Strange in self-defense.
The jury found Gomoll guilty of first-degree intentional homicide. The conviction carries an automatic life prison sentence. A Winnebago County judge will decide whether Gomoll should ever be eligible for parole.
