Rob Hall guilty of second-degree murder
A jury in Ada County has convicted Rob Hall of second-degree murder.
Prosecutors argued that 42-year-old Robert Hall shot Meridian attorney Emmett Corrigan in the heart and head March 11, 2011 in the parking lot of a Walgreens. Hall also suffered a gunshot wound. The trial lasted more than two weeks and included more than 60 witnesses.
Kandi Hall, Rob Hall's wife, had admitted to having an affair with Corrigan, who was also her boss and had been driving around with him the night of the shooting. Kandi testified in the trial, for her husband, saying she didn't remember much of the night and was hoping to work on her marriage. Rob Hall declined to testify.
Rob Hall's attorneys said that he was looking for his wife the night of the shooting, but was attacked by Corrigan when he showed up, and that the gun fell out of his pocket and discharged.
Because the question in the case was Hall's pre-meditation, jurors were given the choice of first-degree murder, second-degree murder or could even convict Hall of a even a lesser offense such as manslaughter.
Hall's sentencing is tentatively set for Dec. 13.
