Lab worker guilty of murder by acid

`A jury found a former lab assistant guilty Thursday of murdering his boss’s estranged husband by stuffing the man’s body in a barrel of acid.

James Fagone, 24, and biochemist Larissa Schuster, 46, were arrested after authorities found the decomposed body of Timothy Schuster in a storage unit that his estranged wife had rented in July 2003.

The body was stuffed into a 55-gallon container.

Fagone testified last week that the two had knocked Timothy Schuster out with chloroform and a stun gun, and that Larissa Schuster had poured gallons of hydrochloric acid over her husband.’
