A jury has convicted a Georgia man of concealing the death of a teacher whose slaying remained a mystery for more than a decade after her body was burned to ash and bone fragments in a rural pecan orchard. Prosecutors in Wilcox County charged 34-year-old Dukes with covering up Tara Grinstead's death by lying to police in a 2016 interview about the case. But Dukes's defense attorney said they failed to prove he intentionally lied.
