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.
