'A woman convicted of killing her husband by tying him to their bed and stabbing him almost 200 times will get a new punishment phase because of ineffective assistance of counsel in her trial, an appeals court ruled Wednesday.
The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals ruled that Susan Wright deserves another opportunity to convince a jury that she deserves a lenient sentence.
Her attorney, Brian Wice, said jurors should have heard from certain witnesses, including Jeffrey Wright's former fiance and an expert on battered women syndrome.
If her attorneys can convince a new jury that Wright killed in “sudden passion” her punishment would be capped at 20 years.
If jurors decide against sudden passion, she could face a maximum sentence of life in prison.
“I'm ecstatic,” Davis said. “I'm very happy she will have a new sentencing hearing and, hopefully, obtain some justice.”'
Yes, it is crucial that this murderer obtain some justice. After all, she is a woman, and it was only a man that she killed.
