Woman sentenced to life for killing fiance on their wedding day

AMERICA
By Huffington Post | July 18th 2013

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 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.
