Virginia Supreme Court grants appeal in Gent murder case

As noted here, the Virginia Supreme Court has granted the petition for appeal in the Jody Gent murder case. Gent was sentenced in 2001 to 56 years in prison upon being convicted of robbing and murdering an elderly woman in Wise County, as reported here in the Coalfield Progress. Gent's conviction was affirmed by the Court of Appeals.
