Woman imprisoned for 25 years attempts freedom again, citing Mississippi Today reporting

Mississippi Today

Attorneys for a woman convicted of capital murder in the death of her then-fiance’s son are once again asking the court for a new trial.

A4J Deputy Director Valena Beety was quoted in this article from Mississippi Today.
