A Texas jury on Thursday convicted a woman of murder in the May 2022 shooting death of professional cyclist Anna Moriah Wilson in a case that led investigators on a 43-day international search for the killer. Kaitlin Armstrong, 35, faced up to life in prison when she was sentenced Thursday. Prosecutors said Armstrong gunned down the 25-year-old Wilson in a jealous rage. Jurors deliberated for about two hours after two weeks of testimony. A Vermont native and former alpine skier at Dartmouth, Wilson was an emerging star in pro gravel and mountain bike racing. Investigators said Armstrong tracked Wilson to the apartment where she was staying and shot her three times. Armstrong briefly met with police before selling her vehicle and using her sister’s name and passport to fly to Costa Rica. Investigators said she spent more than $6,000 on a nose job there and changed her hairstyle and hair color to evade authorities before she was arrested as a beachside hotel.
