'Goddess' convicted.

Us 'domestic goddess' Martha Stewart has been convicted of obstructing justice and lying to the government about why she unloaded her stock in a biotech company just before the price plummeted.

Last night's verdict could send her to prison and cripple the homemaking empire built around her vision of gracious living.

Her ex-stockbroker, Peter Bacanovic, also was found guilty in the stock scandal.

Stewart, 62, grimaced and her eyes widened slightly upon hearing the verdict. She later released a statement maintaining her innocence and promising an appeal.

Supporters shouted: 'We love Martha!' as she left the New York courthouse stone-faced.
