BOISE -- After more than seven hours of deliberation, an Ada County jury has found Rob Hall guilty of second-degree murder in the 2011 killing of Emmett Corrigan
The 43-year-old from Meridian shot and killed 30-year-old attorney Emmett Corrigan in the parking lot of a Meridian Walgreen's drug store in March of 2011.
Police say Hall became angry after learning his
wife had met with Corrigan
at the store, and then drove to the Walgreens
to meet both Corrigan and his
Corrigan was employed as an attorney at the same law office Kandi Hall worked as a legal secretary.
Hall's trial included graphic testimony from dozens of witnesses -- including Kandi Hall -- who detailed her secret affair with Emmett Corrigan
A major turning point in the trial came when Hall's defense attorney claimed his
client had shot Corrigan
in self defense.
Ballistics evidence appeared to partially back up those charges.
However, state prosecutors made an equally damning case against Hall, claiming evidence showed Hall was prepared to shoot and kill Corrigan
when the two met at the Walgreens parking lot.
The family of Emmett Corrigan
sent us this statement after Thursday's verdict.
