New Albany man found guilty of murder

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILL,EKy. (WDRB) -- A New Albany man is found guilty of murdering a woman whose body was pulled from the Ohio River last year.

Clair Chaplin, 61, was found guilty in a Harrison County court on Wednesday afternoon.

Police say he strangled 35-year-old Geneieve Rogge.

Her body was found in the river near Mauckport in late June.

A probable cause affidavit says the two were in a relationship and Chaplin may have been jealous she was spending time with another man.

Chaplin's sentencing date is set for March.
