Monday, July 2nd: *Formal Sentencing (@ 2pm ET) - WV - Aliayah Lunsford (3) (Sept. 24, 2011) - Lena Marie Lunsford Conaway (34), "mom" indicted (3/6/16) with four counts: Murder of a child by parent by failure to provide necessities, which carries a life sentence; death of a child by parent by child abuse, which carries up to 40 years in prison; child abuse resulting in injury, which carries 1-5 years; and concealment of a dead body, which also carries 1-5 years. Plead not guilty. 4/23/18: After 2 hours of deliberations: On the charge of murder of a child by a parent by failure to provide necessities: Guilty On the charge of death of a child by parent by child abuse: Guilty On the charge of child abuse resulting in serious bodily injury: Guilty On the charge of concealment of a dead body: Guilty The jury will decide tomorrow (4/24) if she will be granted mercy or no mercy on the murder charge. 4/24/18: The Lewis County jury has recommended no mercy for Lena Lunsford-Conaway. That means she'll be sentenced to life in prison, and she won't be eligible for parole. That's just for the murder conviction. Lunsford-Conaway will have another sentencing hearing for the other convictions. The sentences for those other convictions will be in addition to the life sentence for murder. Judge Jacob Reger schedules sentencing for Lena Lunsford on June 28 at 9 a.m. Four convictions ranging from murder to child abuse to concealment of a deceased body in case of missing 3-year-old daughter Aliayah. 5/18/18: The defense attorney for Lunsford Conaway says he plans on filing motions that are "outside the typical post-trial motions." Dyer said a motion hearing for Monday was canceled. Dyer said the scheduled hearing was pretty standard for post-trial convictions, but that he needs more time to file other motions. 6/1/18: During this hearing today, defense attorney Tom Dyer is expected to seek a post-verdict judgment of acquittal. It's also likely that he will allege that state didn't share potentially exculpatory evidence with Lunsford Conaway, 35. On the latter issue, Dyer would ask Chief Judge Jake Reger to toss out the guilty verdicts a Lewis County jury returned against Lunsford Conaway." 6/1/18 Update: Lewis County Prosecuting Attorney Christina Flannigan asks for “a week or two” to review the motions filed by Tom Dyer. Dyer has no objections to the request. Consequently, a post-trial motions hearing was held on 6/21. 6/21/18 Update: Judge denies motion for new trial, but does give defense a continuance of sentencing date. Moved from June 28th to July 2nd.
