Nominate West Virginia Lock Up in the Best New and Best Law Blogs

The 2009 Weblog Awards
Whoever happens to stop by this blog may wonder why I started it. Whenever I read news stories online I always like to put a face to the story. So I got to thinking maybe other people would as well. I always keep up on WV news and most stories don't have the mugshots with them so I hunt them up online and post them with the story. It's not that hard and I don't know why the state news sites don't do it

Arguments in Taylor Case To Be Heard

FAIRMONT — The State Supreme Court has agreed to hear arguments in the high-profile Lincoln Taylor murder trial in the coming months.

Taylor, a 25-year-old Huttonsville native, stands accused of first-degree murder for pulling the trigger that killed 22-year-old Derrick “Lil’ D” Osborne on Memorial Day 2007.

And this week, justices with the Supreme Court of Appeals voted in a slim 3-2 majority to hear oral arguments in the case following two motions made by defense attorney Martin Sheehan last month. These motions basically asked the high court to overturn a mid-August ruling made by Marion Judge David R. Janes, which denied a previous attempt made by Sheehan to throw out a huge chunk of the state’s case on the grounds of doubly jeopardy.
