A former telemarketer for a Miramar dating service was convicted yesterday of helping her jealous boyfriend kill her boss hours after she slept with the boss on a date. A San Diego Superior Court jury took about two hours to convict Ny Nourn of murder. Nourn, 22, a 1999 graduate of Mira Mesa High School, faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison without parole. The jury’s verdict ended a oneweek trial during which a prosecutor argued that Nourn helped lure her boss, David Stevens, 38, to his death at the behest of her irate boyfriend, who found out Nourn had sex with Stevens earlier that night.
Stevens was Nourn’s supervisor at a dating service called The Perfect Match. He was shot to death Dec. 23, 1998. His body was found inside his car, which had been abandoned and set on fire on a La Jolla street. The crime went unsolved until last year, when Nourn came forward with information about the killing, telling police her boyfriend had been threatening her. Her boyfriend, Ronald Barker – a 38yearold Escondido auto mechanic who met Nourn over the Internet while his wife was pregnant with their second child was convicted of murder at a separate trial earlier this month. He also faces a sentence of life without parole.
