A medical examiner testified that she was stabbed repeatedly with a 6-inch kitchen knife. Two of the wounds punctured her heart.
Her estranged husband later was charged and convicted of the murder.
At the trial, information surfaced that Sucik had been in a Pennsylvania prison in the early 1990s, serving a sentence of 3 1/2 years to 10 years after pleading guilty to aggravated assault against a previous wife, court records said.
After his release, Marian and Timothy Sucik were married on Aug. 15, 1992.
Testimony at the trial revealed that an abusive relationship began soon after the wedding.
That abuse led Marian to twice move in temporarily with her grandmother, only to return to Sucik.
On Jan. 24, 1994, Sucik went to the King Street doctor's office where Marian worked as a secretary, court records said. Witnesses saw the two walk together to Sucik's car, which was parked a block away on Mulberry Street.
Witnesses said Marian and a man got out of a car and argued before she began to "trot" away from the man. He caught up to her, pushed her and began stabbing her, they said.
No date for the resentencing has been set yet.
