The Long Island stepmom who testified in her own defense that she was “evil” but not a killer was found guilty Friday of second-degree murder and child endangerment charges in the death of her ex’s 8-year-old son Thomas Valva.

As in the case against her former fiance and ex-NYPD cop Michael Valva, Angela Pollina, 45, faces the prospect of 25 years to life in prison in the freezing garage killing of Thomas, who was on the autism spectrum.

Her sentencing is scheduled for April 11.
