Jurors found Anthony Michael Kubica guilty of the first-degree murder of 78-year-old Marie Darling, whose decomposing body was discovered in California’s Coachella Valley in 1990, 24 days after she was last seen alive by a neighbour.

City News Service reported that the jury deliberated for one day before finding the 63-year-old guilty. Riverside County Superior Court Judge Timothy Hollenhorst scheduled a hearing for Jan. 10, when a date to sentence Kubica will likely be set.

California Superior Court documents made public last year alleged that Kubica killed Darling for financial gain. Kubica and his wife, Connie Jo Kubica, lived in Palm Springs at the time. Investigators believe that Connie Jo Kubica, who died in 2010, was Darling’s financial adviser and had knowledge of her wealth.

The prosecutor argued that Anthony Kubica emptied Darling’s bank account and used the money to pay down the mortgage on his Palm Springs home, which was facing foreclosure. According to bank records, cash deposits made after Darling’s death allowed Kubica to cover all outstanding mortgage payments.

A year after the killing, a lawyer acting for the Darling family discovered that US$184,135 had been transferred from Darling’s Swiss bank account to the eastern Caribbean British territory of Anguilla. The National Bank of Anguilla account that received the money was opened on May 24, 1990, by Anthony Kubica, according to California court documents.

Toha is convicted of killing his wife Surya in 2010 after he made a televised tearful plea for her safe return when he claimed she disappeared. Toha was convicted of conspiracy to commit murder two years ago and is already serving 30 years for it. A letter written by Surya was also shown in court.

Financial records show Anthony Kubica went to the Anguilla bank and withdrew $170,000 in two transactions. He asked the bank to transfer the remaining US$130,000 to a Royal Bank of Canada account in his name.

Three years after Darling’s slaying, Riverside sheriff’s investigators searched the Kubica home in Scottsdale, Ariz. They seized receipts, including one for the purchase of duct tape in Palm Springs on June 1, 1990. They found documents for travel to Anguilla and banking documents in Anthony Kubica’s name relating to the Anguilla account.

Documents revealed Darling’s feet were bound with duct tape. An autopsy found she died of blunt-force trauma to the head.

Authorities in California filed the murder charge in May 2014, accusing Anthony Kubica of committing the premeditated murder of Darling on June 5, 1990. Three years after the charge was filed, the U.S. government asked Canadian officials to extradite Anthony Kubica to the U.S. to face trial.

Anthony Kubica was arrested on a B.C. Supreme Court warrant on Sept. 20, 2017, and has remained in custody ever since.

An extradition hearing took place on March 6, 2018, and the B.C. Supreme Court concluded there was enough evidence to commit Anthony Kubica to custody awaiting extradition. He was surrendered to California authorities on Oct. 4, 2018, and pleaded not guilty at a hearing in December. In recent years Kubica was behind a controversial plan to build 500 homes in the Cowichan Valley.
