A Glendive, Montana jury found Levi Stark, 23, guilty of deliberate homicide, arson, and tampering with evidence on May 9. Stark claimed self defense in the December 2012 murder of Matthew Wiseman, but the jury did not believe his testimony.

Wiseman, formerly of Baker, was living in Glendive at the time when Stark assaulted him with a knife at his home. According to court documents, Stark tried to cover up the crime by burning evidence, including a vehicle in the County Impound. Stark’s co-defendant, Jessica Miller-Grossman, has plead guilty to her part in the crimes. Both defendants will be sentenced at a later date, and Stark could be sentenced to a maximum of life in prison for the homicide charge.
