Man gets life in slaying

Posted: Thursday, November 29, 2012 2:00 pm

HAZLEHURST — A Walthall County man will spend the rest of his life in prison after a Copiah County Circuit Court jury found him guilty Wednesday of murdering his common-law wife in June 2010 and hiding her body in a freezer.

After deliberating for a little more than 25 minutes, the jury returned a unanimous decision: Robert Silva of Jayess, shot his common-law wife, Darlene Berthelot twice in the head and upper body with a pump-action, 12-gauge shotgun.
