NEW YORK – A Nassau County jury convicted Robert Crumb of fatally stabbing his wife, Maria Kontonis and wounding his daughter, Tiffany, in a 2016 attack before leading police on a high-speed chase in which he crashed into a gas station.

Crumb was remanded and faces a maximum sentence of 25 years-to-life in prison when he is sentenced on June 14, Newsday reports.

A jury in Nassau County Court in Mineola deliberated for less than five hours on Monday, May 7 before convicting Crumb, 45, of second-degree murder, one count each of first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and resisting arrest. Jurors acquitted Crumb of criminal possession of a weapon and another count of second-degree assault, Newsday says.
