The 45 year old Tarloff was found guilty on all counts, including first-degree murder, in Manhattan Supreme Court this afternoon. He faces life in prison.
It was the third attempt by the Manhattan district attorney's office to convict Tarloff. A mistrial was declared, and in 2010 he was found unfit during jury selection.
Had his insanity defense succeeded, he could have been ordered held indefinitely in a psychiatric hospital.
Tarloff was charged with using a cleaver to kill a psychologist, Kathryn Faughey. He apparently intended to rob her colleague, Kent Shinbach, a psychiatrist who had treated him in 1991 and shared an office with Faughey.
