JUNEAU (AP) -- A Juneau jury Friday found Daniel Neal of Hoonah guilty of raping and battering his wife. After hearing the verdict, Neal, 48, collapsed with an apparent seizure, said Superinten-dent Dan Carothers of Lemon Creek Correctional Center. Alaska State Troopers took him to Bartlett Regional Hospital. He was treated, released and put on suicide watch .

The charges stemmed from a Nov. 21 altercation with his wife, Darcy Neal, 46, who suffered broken collar bones, broken ribs, a broken jaw and cheek.

''She got hurt pretty bad,'' Hoonah police officer Christopher Gifford testified Tuesday.

Daniel Neal's sentencing is scheduled for June 21.
