A Spanish jury has found a Slovakian model guilty of murdering her millionaire ex-boyfriend by shooting the Briton twice in the head at his home near Marbella on the Costa del Sol two years ago.

The verdict against 26-year-old Maria Kukucova was handed down Friday after a trial this week in the southern city of Malaga.

Kukucova told the court she "never meant to hurt" Andrew Bush, saying that the former jewelry store owner died during a violent struggle.

Prosecutors say Kukucova shot 48-year-old Bush twice in the head and once in the shoulder on April 5, 2014.
