A Kentucky woman who shot her boyfriend in the face just before he was due to meet Miss Ohio 2012 for a date has been found guilty of murder.
After two trials, a jury has once again convicted Shayna Hubers, 27, for killing 29-year-old Ryan Poston. The jury recommended a life sentence Wednesday, with the possibility of parole after 20 years.
Hubers had claimed she shot the attorney in self-defense because she ‘feared’ him. Prosecutors said she murdered him because he wanted to break-up with her.
Surveillance footage from the police interrogation room showed Hubers dancing and singing ‘I did it, yes I did it’ just hours after the shooting.
Hubers’ trial garnered national attention three years ago. On Tuesday she was convicted of murder for the second time on Tuesday in a retrial over her ex-boyfriend’s brutal death.
Shayna Hubers, 27, was found guilty of murder on Tuesday more than five years after she allegedly shot and killed her on-again, off-again boyfriend, Ryan Carter Poston, when he allegedly tried to break up with her.
Poston, a 29-year-old lawyer, was found dead in his home in Highland Heights, Kentucky, northeast of Louisville, in October 2012. Hubers claimed Poston was abusive and that she shot him in self-defense, but the jury didn’t believe her.
The retrial jury found her guilty of murder charges after about five hours of deliberation.
Hubers was first found guilty of murdering Poston in 2015 and sentenced to 40 years in prison.
The trial was thrown out after it was revealed one of the jurors had a prior felony conviction, which is illegal in Kentucky.
Hubers wept into the lap of her attorney before the verdict was read on Tuesday, according to The Cincinnati Enquirer.
She also mouthed the words ‘I love you’ to her mother.
Poston’s family released a statement after the verdict, saying it brought them peace but not happiness.
