A jury in Sheppard's first trial convicted him ol second-degree murder, and he was sentenced to life imprisonment. He was released on $10,000 bond from Ohio State Penitentiary in 1964 and two days later married Ariane. They began their romance as pen pals when he was behind bars. Last June 6, in a landmark decision, the U.S. Supreme Court ordered Sheppard retried or freed.

At the news conference, Art- ane said of the verdict: "If! a great satisfaction of course It's so new now, though." She said she hopes to bring her daughter here from Germany to live in a lakefront home they recently bought a n from the house where Marilyn Sheppard was slain. "Had you two made any plans if the verdict had gone the other way?" she was asked. "Yes, she said. Then '.._. voice broke, tears came and she buried her face in Sheppard's shoulder. She said no more.
