LOS ANGELES — Christian Gerhartsreiter, a German native who once posed as a member of the Rockefeller family, has been found guilty in the 1985 murder of a San Marino man.

The verdict was read Tuesday morning in Los Angeles Superior Court.

Gerhartsreiter, 52, was accused of bludgeoning his landlady’s adult son with a blunt object and then digging a 3-foot-deep grave in the backyard of the victim’s home.

The body was buried behind a guest house where Gerhartsreiter had been living.

The victim, John Sohus, 27, vanished in early 1985 along with his wife, Linda, who has never been found.
