Guilty on all counts in NYC dentist slaying

A New York City doctor and a relative have been convicted of first-degree murder in the killing of her estranged husband during a child custody battle.
Mazoltuv Borukhova (MAH'-zuhl-tov Bohr-uh-KOH'-vuh) and her cousin, Mikhail Mallayev (Mik-HAYL' MAL'-eh-yev), also were convicted Tuesday of conspiracy.
Daniel Malakov was gunned down while delivering the couple's 4-year-old daughter for a supervised visit with her mother in a park.
Prosecutors said Borukhova was so distraught over temporarily losing custody that she hired Mallayev to kill her ex-husband in broad daylight.
The defendants face life in prison without parole.
Malakov was a dentist.
