It's time to take a look back at the stories making headlines this week in the 69 News week in review.

On Monday, a Carbon County jury worked late and returned a guilty verdict in the trial of Earnest Freeby, who was accused of killing his wife.

Freeby was found guilty of first degree murder for the death of Edwina Onyango, but her body was never found.

The verdict came after more than five hours of deliberation.

Prosecutors said her blood was found in the basement, but Freeby's lawyers argued Onyango could still be alive.

On Thursday, former Reading police officer Ronald Miko was charged in federal court in connection with a sex trafficking ring.

U.S. Justice officials said Miko was involved in an operation by a man who called himself "God."

They said Miko arranged sexual encounters with prostitutes while he was still a member of the force as part of a web-based company called Cash Money Brother Escorts.com.

Officials said Miko wired money to the prison account of Michael Johnson, another person involved in the ring, as a bribe to prevent investigators from finding out he was involved.

He's charged with obstructing the investigation and has since been fired.
