GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - A 50-year-old Gulfport woman has again been sentenced to life in prison for the murder of her ex-boyfriend's girlfriend.
Twonia Renee Williams, convicted in 2012 for the 2009 murder of Katrina Sargent, received a new trial this week from an appeal to the Mississippi Supreme Court.
The Sun Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1gGHEKW ) a Harrison County jury heard similar testimony this week and deliberated about 70 minutes Thursday on charges of murder, second-degree murder or manslaughter. The jury found Williams guilty of murder.
Circuit Judge Roger Clark sentenced her after the verdict was read.
Sargent was shot in the face Dec. 5, 2009, in front of her home, in which her three children were sleeping.
