Marcelo Lucero's mother plans to seek an extension on her visa so she can stay in the United States for the May 26 sentencing of Jeffrey Conroy, her family said Tuesday.

Rosario Lucero was scheduled to return to her native Gualaceo, Ecuador, on May 10, but hopes to stay here longer, her son, Joselo, said.

The family spent the first day after a jury found Jeffrey Conroy guilty of manslaughter by resting and doing chores such as buying groceries, Joselo said.

"My mom and my sister [Isabel] are a little tired," he said. "We are trying to take some rest."
