BRUSSELS (AP) - A jury has a 26-year-old schoolteacher who killed a love rival by sabotaging her parachute guilty of murder. The teacher, Els Clottemans, faces a maximum penalty of life in prison. Sentencing is set for Thursday.

The jury said Wednesday that Clottemans disabled the parachute of Els Van Doren just before the two joined a sky dive over Eastern Belgium in 2006.

The prosecution had cited jealousy as a motive. The killer and her victim were romantically involved with the same man.
