Pa. woman gets life in fiance's stabbing deathJuly 16, 2013 @ 1:34 pm
ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) - An eastern Pennsylvania woman sentenced to life in prison in the stabbing death of her fiance on their wedding day says she still loves him.
Thirty-two-year-old Na Cola Franklin was convicted of first-degree murder in the August death of 36-year-old Billy Brewster after an argument at their Whitehall Township apartment hours before the ceremony.
Easton's The Express-Times newspaper ( http://bit.ly/12uIhzV) reports Franklin said Tuesday before she was sentenced to the mandatory life term she hadn't meant to kill Brewster.
Franklin told the victim's mother in court, "I love him. I do still love him. I love him more than myself."
Defense attorney John Waldron has vowed an appeal. He argues Brewster came home drunk from an impromptu bachelor party and attacked Franklin.
