QUINCY — A jury of six men and six women found Tim Bliefnick guilty Wednesday on two counts of First Degree Murder and one count of Home Invasion in the Feb. 23 shooting death of his estranged wife Rebecca Bliefnick.

The Adams County jury took 4 hours and 15 minutes to decide Bliefnick’s fate.

Bliefnick was emotionless as he stared ahead while the clerk read the verdict. He was quickly surrounded by court security and handcuffed as soon as the verdict was read.

Bliefnick’s attorney, Casey Schnack, said she would need 45 days to file her post-trial motions and Assistant State’s Attorney Josh Jones didn’t object to that.

Sentencing will be Aug. 11 at 1:30 p.m. before Judge Robert Adrian. Bliefnick could get up to life in prison on either of the First Degree Murder charges and the Home Invasion charge because a firearm was used.

Following the verdict, members of the Adams County State’s Attorney’s office and Quincy Police Department approached Becky’s family. There were many hugs, tears and thank you’s exchanged.
