Trial is over and the judge has followed the jury’s decision regarding sentencing:  Joshua Fulgham will not be sentenced to death but instead will serve life imprisonment (two consecutive terms) for the kidnapping and murder of his wife, Heather Strong.

For details, see the coverage.

Note:  My congratulations to Terry Lenamon – a hard fought defense, especially considering the circumstances of the case, the earlier death penalty sentence of Emilia Carr, and the defense’s acknowledgement that Fulgham had participated in the killing itself, which brought all the focus of the trial from the guilt phase solely to the penalty phase. 

Congrats again to Terry!
