VA Supreme Court to review Blanton murder case

Posted by Shawn Maclauchlan

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The Virginia Supreme Court will review the case of a Caroline county woman convicted of killing her state trooper-husband.

The court will hear arguments in Donna Blanton's appeal.

The 45-year-old is serving a life term sentence for the 2003 death of Taylor Blanton.

She claimed her husband was killed by an intruder.

Blanton was convicted in 2005, but won an appeal based on improper jury selection. Her second trial was moved from Caroline county to Virginia Beach because of extensive local news coverage, but she was convicted again.
