     A jury took three hours to decide that newlywed Felicia Fine of Cedar Key was murdered by her husband, Charles Edwin Duke.

    Duke was also convicted of the false imprisonment of White for forcing the roommate to accompany him to a popular mud bogging site near Bronson where he negotiated White's release to law enforcement officers.
