Parolee convicted of killing girlfriend’s husband

PEEKSKILL – A Newburgh man, who conspired with the wife of a Peekskill cabbie, to kill her husband, was convicted in Westchester County Court on Thursday of murder in the first degree and criminal possession of a weapon.

John Murray, 62, was in state prison awaiting parole for two unrelated murders committed in 1977, when he conspired with Beatrice Camper, the wife of the victim, Terry Camper. 

Murray and Mrs. Camper, who spoke by prison telephone, had an ongoing affair that lead to Terry Camper’s death so that conspirators could collect his life insurance money, said Westchester District Attorney Janet DiFiore.

Camper was found shot in the head in his cab in Peekskill on October 3, 2012.

Murray faces up to life in prison without parole when sentenced in June. Mrs. Camper, who pled guilty to second-degree murder, will be sentenced in June.
