For those who don’t know. Carla Hughes is on trial for murder of her boyfriends fiancee Avis Banks. She is charged with two murders as Avis Banks was 5 months pregnant. The jury was out just about 8 hours. She was found guilty of two counts of capital murder and now faces the death penalty. The penalty phase will begin on Wednesday. In Mississippi the jury has to vote unanimously for death not just a majority.
I didn’t think that there was enough evidence to convict her. Everything to me seemed circumstantial and could point to Hughes or Keyon Pittman
UPDATE: She was sentenced yesterday to life in prison.
