ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) – Prosecutors will not seek the death penalty if an Asheville woman is convicted of shooting and killing her boyfriend last year.
The Asheville Citizen-Times reported (http://avlne.ws/298mtZZ) that District Attorney Todd Williams said he will not seek a death sentence against 47-year-old Robin Renee Richardson.
Richardson is charged with first-degree murder in the Dec. 11 shooting death of 51-yea-rold Timothy Lee Fry.
A search warrant states that she has said Fry assaulted her during an argument and she shot him.
Williams said Richardson could face life in prison without parole if she is convicted.
