Dayton found guilty of murder

Posted:

MARENGO (KWWL) -- An Iowa County jury says Jessica Dayton murdered Curtis Bailey last July.

The verdict was announced early Tuesday afternoon.

Prosecutors say Bailey was hit in the head with a rock several times.

Bailey's common-law wife, 44-year-old Denise Frei, and her son, 19-year-old Jacob Hilgendorf, also face murder charges  -- but they say Dayton was the one who dealt the fatal blow.
