Pittsburgh Comicon Founder is found guilty of murder

As a follow-up to a news item that was posted here in the summer of last year, Michael George, founder of the Pittsburgh Comicon, was found guilty in Macomb County Court of killing his wife, Barbara Maria George, who was murdered in 1990 while preparing for his birthday party in their comic book shop, Comics World, in Clinton, Michigan.

According to reports, George collapsed and was openly sobbing as the verdict was read. Even though the verdict was given, there will be some feelings that will never heal from the outcome of these proceedings.

Both daughters testified for the defense of their father. "“We have two nieces who we’ll probably never see,” Joe Kowynia, Barbara George’s brother, said to the Detroit Free Press. Barbara George’s sister, Chris Ball, also said to the paper, "It’s a steep price for justice."
