A Eugene man who drove over his estranged wife’s fitness instructor while he was walking his dog was convicted Thursday of attempted murder.
A Lane County jury also convicted Francisco Ochoa of assault but acquitted him of another attempted murder charge for crashing his pickup truck last March into his wife’s car. She had scrambled to safety.
The Register-Guard reports Ochoa also was convicted of animal abuse for killing the dog.
