SUTTON, W.Va. — A Webster County woman has been convicted for the second time in the 2009 shooting death of her husband.

A Braxton County jury convicted Julia Surbaugh of Webster Springs Thursday night on a charge of first degree murder without mercy.

Surbaugh was originally tried and convicted in 2009 but the Supreme Court threw out the verdict in 2012 and ordered a new trial.

The second trial was moved to Braxton County and lasted for 10 days until the jury returned the guilty verdict Thursday night.

Surbaugh was immediately sentenced by Circuit Judge Richard Facemire to spend the rest of her life in prison with no chance for parole.

    FOR ONCE JUSTICE HAS BEEN SERVED. I WISH ALL JUDGES WOULD DO THEIR JOB CORRECTLY LIKE THIS ONE DIS AND STOP GIVING THESE LITTLE PUNKS PAROLE AFTER THEY MURDERED SOMEONE.

  • guilty as charged

    twice a jury has found her guilty
    i hope the supreme court wastes little time reviewing this again and upholds this jury's verdict
    may she rot in prison as she deserves to do so
