Na Cola Franklin may be getting a new trial

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - A Lehigh County woman serving life in prison for murdering her fiancé may be getting a new trial.

A hearing on post-sentence motions was held Tuesday for Na Cola Franklin.

Franklin's lawyer said they are requesting a new trial because the evidence presented in the case didn't support the verdict.

Officials say Franklin stabbed Billy Brewster in their home in Whitehall Township in August 2012, .just hours before their wedding.

She was convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to life in prison.
