CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (WDTV) — A Harrison County jury has convicted a woman of felony murder, without mercy, in the death of Keyairy Wilson.
It took the jury just one hour to come to the verdict.
Elizabeth Ladybird Jenkins took the stand in her own defense, Wednesday afternoon. Although previous police recordings have her confessing to the crime, when she was on the stand, Jenkins changed her story. She said there was never a robbery and she didn't shoot Wilson.
A judge sentenced Jenkins to life without mercy, plus one to five years.
