LAKE COUNTY, OH (WOIO) -

The jury found a 52-year-old woman guilty of killing her 77-year-old neighbor in Madison Township.

Danna Weimer was convicted on multiple charges, including aggravated murder and tampering with evidence.

Sentencing is set for November 7. Weimer faces more than 60 years in prison.

Police say Danna and her son, Zach, robbed and murdered Eleanor Robertson inside her home this past June.

Robertson's body was discovered inside her Canterbury Drive home after a concerned neighbor called police. The neighbor told police he feared the home had been burglarized.

Officers found the home had been ransacked, but were unable to locate Robertson. As the investigation continued, Robertson's body was found hidden inside her home. She had about 90 stab wounds.

Prosecutors say the crime was fueled by a drug addiction.

Zach's trial is scheduled to start on November 13.
