Mo. man convicted of killing insurance agent

 ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) - A St. Charles man has been convicted of killing his auto insurance agent during a robbery prompted by a big loss at a casino.


The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/Mg5v48 ) reports a jury deliberated less than three hours Thursday before finding 35-year-old Paul White guilty of first-degree murder.

DNA evidence linked White to the 2007 shooting of Robert Eidman inside the victim's insurance office.

The jury heard audiotapes of White telling police he planned to rob Eidman the day after he lost $1,200 at a casino. But White insisted it was an accomplice - his former roommate - who shot and killed Eidman after they were unable to open a drawer where the insurance agent had kept some cash.
