Husband's brother held responsible for Rebecca Zahau's 2011 death

A jury has held a millionaire husband's brother responsible for the death of Rebecca Zahau, who was found hanging at a San Diego mansion in 2011.
Adam Shacknai dropped his head as the verdicts were read Wednesday, according to the Union-Tribune. The brother of pharmaceutical executive Jonah Shacknai must pay Zahau's family $5 million for the loss of her love and companionship, jurors ruled.
"[I] asked Mary at the end of the day, 'Wow, what do we do? ... We got a verdict,'" lawyer Keith Greer said during a press conference, according to ABC News. "And she says, 'We got to get the case reopened, that’s it.' Our job's not done yet."
Zahau's sister Mary Zahau-Loehner and other family members are hoping that authorities will reopen the criminal investigation. A coroner had called the 32-year-old Zahau's death a suicide.

The San Diego County Sheriff's Office says it's open to reviewing evidence in the case, but stands by the findings of investigators and medical examiners.
It had been believed that Zahau took her own life because she was distraught over the fatal fall suffered by Jonah Shacknai's 6-year-old son at the mansion days before.
"This has always been about getting the sheriff to reopen this," Greer said. "Adam Shacknai doesn’t have money. This isn’t about money. It’s about getting the Sheriff’s Department to open this up, do their job. This clearly isn’t a suicide."
Rebecca Zahau died under mysterious circumstances in 2011.
The jury held the 54-year-old Adam Shacknai responsible for Zahau's death in a 9-3 vote. Greer argued that Shacknai struck Zahau on the head, sexually assaulted and strangled her, and then staged the hanging.
"Why did Adam Shacknai brutally murder Rebecca Zahau?" Greer said in court Monday, according to the Union-Tribune. "It's one of the oldest reasons in the world — sex."
Adam Shacknai, who had come to the California home after his nephew's fall, said he found Zahau's naked body hanging by a rope from a balcony, and cut her down.
