SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (KNEP) - A Torrington man was convicted of second-degree murder Thursday, after a jury found him guilty for the January, 2020, killing of a Scottsbluff woman.

Following a five-hour deliberation, a Goshen County jury voted to convict 28-year-old Terry Anderson on second-degree murder charges for shooting and killing Deedra Strauch, 56, in Torrington on January 24th, 2020.

Anderson was originally arrested on murder charges following the shooting that killed Strauch in January, but was released on bond.

His trial, which had been delayed due to COVID-19, began Monday in the Eighth Judicial District Court of Goshen County.

Anderson is now in custody awaiting his sentence. The Goshen County Attorney says the standard sentence for second-degree murder in Wyoming is a minimum of 20 years.
