Adam BakerA jury has decided the fate of a Cameron man accused of killing his wife.

Adam Baker was found guilty by a jury Thursday of second-degree murder and armed criminal action in connection with the fatal shooting of his wife Holly Baker. Investigators said the pair argued in their home on February 25, 2015.

According to court documents, Baker told police he took a gun away from his wife and later shot her.

The case was transferred to Clay County on a change of venue. The trial began earlier this week in Liberty, Mo.

A sentencing date has been set for Sept. 8.  Sentencing recommendations include 13 years for second-degree murder and three years for armed criminal action.
