Timothy “Tim” W. Bliefnick, who used to be on the game showed Family Feud and became famous for a controversial comment he made about marriage, has been found guilty of killing his divorced wife, Rebecca Bliefnick, on February 23 and breaking into her home.
On August 11, Bliefnick will get his sentence, which could be life in jail.
Before deciding, the jury in Quincy, Illinois, talked for almost four hours. The lawyer for Bliefnick’s defense plans to fight the decision, saying that he is disappointed with the result but respects the jury’s decision.
A family member found Rebecca Bliefnick’s body after she didn’t pick up her kids from school. She had been shot. When she died, she and her husband were going through a divorce.
Tim Bliefnick was found guilty three years after he made a controversial comment on Family Feud in answer to a question about wedding mistakes. His answer got a strong response from the crowd, so Bliefnick changed his position and said he loved his wife before commenting.
