More guilty verdicts for "hit-and-run grannies"

An elderly woman was convicted Monday of the last two counts in a murder-for-profit scheme which authorities said targeted homeless men and earned millions of dollars.

Olga Rutterschmidt, 75, was convicted of first-degree murder and conspiracy to murder for financial gain in the death of Paul Vados, 73. Last week, she was convicted of murder and conspiracy in the death of Kenneth McDavid, 50.

Co-defendant Helen Golay, 77, was convicted of both murders and conspiracy last week.
