A Central Islip woman has been found guilty of killing her friend to steal his home.
Donatila O'Mahony was convicted of murder and forgery charges after prosecutors say she shot and killed Lee Pedersen inside his Aquebogue home in 2020.
The Suffolk DA says O'Mahony forged Pedersen's will in an attempt to claim ownership of the home.
She faces 25 years to life in prison and is expected to be sentenced next month.
