A man accused of trying to kill his wife by using a car bomb was found guilty on Friday.
Thomas Biederman, 51, of Russell, Ky., was found guilty of attempted murder and use of a weapon of mass destruction, the Ashland Police Department said. Biederman appeared to have fainted during the reading of the verdict and had to be escorted by deputies, police said.
In July 2011, Janie Biederman's car exploded when she started it at the Sky Tower Garage on Bath Avenue in Ashland. She suffered from cuts and burns. Investigators found PVC pipe, a cap, some wires and gun powder at the scene.
Thomas Biederman could face 20 years on each charge to run 40 years consecutive. Final sentencing will be Dec. 7.
