    Hi Vicky, thank you for the update. I think about little Aliayah often & stop in here sporadically to see if anything has changed. I'm glad Aliayah had someone like you and her sisters to stand up for her. I can't imagine how terrified they were.
    God Bless you too.

    Omg. I actually thought that was a picture of Aliayah in the side by side pics. I wonder how long the little girl had really been there. The report said that the remains were uncovered/unburied.

    2/22/19 Update: Assistant Attorney General Scott Johnson recently filed a motion for extension of time to file the state’s response brief from Thursday. The state Supreme Court granted the motion, extending the deadline by about a month, to March 22.
    3/22/19 Update: State wants a memorandum opinion. Defense wants to set arguments. Not sure what Supreme Court will do but there are days set aside in April-May of the current term. The state is being represented by Assistant Attorney General Scott Johnson in its response to Lunsford's January appeal by her attorney Jeremy Cooper. In Johnson's response filed last week, he rebutted each of Cooper's nine reasons why he believes Lunsford's conviction should be overturned.
    11/27/19 Update: The state Supreme Court is scheduled to hold a petition conference Jan. 9 in the appeal Lunsford's sentencing. At the conference, held in limine, the justices likely will decide whether the appeal of Lunsford Conaway merits oral arguments & an opinion, or whether it can be addressed through a memorandum decision. Oral Arguments likely would be scheduled some time during the January-June term of the Supreme Court. If the case is decided by a memorandum decision, it likely would be released during that same time period.

    and when I click on the link - https://www.wboy.com/news/crime/w-v...-lunsford-conaway-appeal-during-current-term/

    CHARLESTON, W.Va. — On Thursday, justices with the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals met in order to discuss whether or not an appeal of Lena Lunsford-Conaway’s conviction would be set for argument.

    According to the state supreme court’s public relations officer, Jennifer Bundy, justices met to discuss the appeal process and decided to set the case for argument in the current court term.

    An official date for the argument has yet to be determined by the high court’s clerk, but will be released in the near future.

    Before this decision, Lunsford-Conaway’s defense attorney Jeremy Cooper filed the appeal Jan. 7, 2019, for his client who was convicted by a Lewis County jury in April of murder and abuse in the death of her daughter, Aliayah Lunsford.
