Death penalty verdict here in Abingdon

Here from the Roanoke paper, here from the Virginia Tech paper, and here from the Richmond paper, are stories about the Washington County jury's recommendation of the death penalty in the case of William Morva. The case was moved for trial from Montgomery County, and tried by the Montgomery County prosecutors.

I can't remember the last time someone was sentenced to death in a case from here in the 28th Circuit, unless it was the late Lem Tuggle, Governor Kaine's old client, one of the famous escapees from Mecklenburg. Or, Arthur Jenkins.
