As the guilty verdict was read out, Michael Marin closed his eyes and held his head in his hands before appearing to slip something into his mouth.

 

Minutes later, the 53-year-old collapsed to the floor in convulsions and died.

 

The shocking scenes were caught on camera in Maricopa County Superior Court in Arizona, where Marin had been on trial since May.
