Woman Convicted of Murdering Her Ex May Now Get a New Trial
Shayna Hubers was sentenced last year to 40 years in prison for murdering her ex.
Now, her attorneys are seeking to have that verdict thrown out, as news breaks that a juror in her trial was a convicted felon himself, Happening Now reported.
The latest development in this high-profile murder case is likely “grounds for a new trial,” said Gregg Jarett.
Hubers, 24, was found guilty in August of murdering 29-year-old Ryan Poston, her on-again, off-again lover she’d met through Facebook.
Back then, she told authorities she had shot Poston six times, claiming it was done in self-defense.
But some 50,000 text messages submitted for evidence indicated that Hubers had planned the shooting, making statements like, “Part of me wanted to turn around and shoot him.”
“I suspect the same result will be had here, because the evidence was so incriminating, overwhelming,” said Jarrett.
