STEVEN Roy Turner has been found guilty of murdering Nicole Lieske.
A jury returned its verdict at 5.45pm after retiring Monday morning.
Turner took the stand to defend himself against the murder charge during a three week trial.
Justice Duncan McMeekin adjourned to sentence 34-year-old Turner at a later date.
