After two days of deliberating, jurors convict Clara Harris of murder.
Prosecutors said it was a clear case of murder- while the defense argued all along it was all an accident.
Now, as Elizabeth Sanchez reports, the 45-year old dentist could face life in prison, but if jurors find it was a crime of passion that time could be a lot less.

Brown was named as "an accessory after the fact." She invoked her fifth amendment right and refused to testify.
