(Scroll down for video) A woman was arrested and charged with murder related charges after she stabbed and killed her groom just hours before the wedding ceremony, according to court proceedings in Pennsylvania.
Now, the Pennsylvania woman who was accused of stabbing her boyfriend to death on her wedding day has been convicted of murder.
A jury in Allentown, found 31-year-old Na Cola Franklin guilty.
Prosecutors said that Franklin and 36-year-old Billy Brewster, had a discussion in the morning, the day they were supposed to get married.
Defense attorney John Waldron claimed that Brewster came home to their Whitehall Township apartment drunk after an all night bachelor party. He said that Brewster attacked Franklin and then tried to leave with the couple’s son, who was 9-months-old at the time.
The defense attorney also claimed that the woman grabbed a knife in order to protect her child from being harmed by the drunk groom.
Prosecutors said however, that the child was never in any danger, instead, the woman was worried about her hair not being perfect for the wedding.
“Talk about loving each other to death. What normal bride stabs her groom to death the day of the wedding? Something was seriously wrong with their relationship to begin with. The woman is a danger to society, she should never be allowed to leave prison,” Cindy Lopez, 24, of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania told YourJewishNews.com after being asked to comment on Franklin’s murder conviction.
The woman is facing life in prison after being convicted of first degree murder.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view
