A jury has found a Connecticut man guilty of trying to bribe a state judge to influence a grand jury investigation into his wife's death in 1984.

Jurors reached the verdict in the case of 77-year-old Dominic Badaracco of Sherman on Friday in Bridgeport Superior Court. He denied allegations that he offered Judge Robert Brunetti $100,000 in 2010 to help shield him from the investigation.

Brunetti testified he was stunned by the offer and reported it to court officials the next day.

Mary Badaracco was 38 when she disappeared 29 years ago. Her body has never been found. The one-judge grand jury investigation ended last year without anyone being charged in her death.

Dominic Badaracco denies any involvement in his wife's death.
