Jury recommends life in prison for Hubers

CAMPBELL COUNTY, KY (FOX19) - The jury recommends life in prison for Shayna Hubers. Hubers is convicted of murder for shooting her boyfriend, Ryan Poston in October 2012.

The jury found Hubers guilty of murder in her retrial Tuesday.

Hubers shot and killed Poston in Highland Heights six years ago.

Her attorneys asked the jury for a minimum 20 year sentence. The jury could have recommend 20 to 50 years or life in prison for Hubers.

Both the prosecution and defense spent about three hours Tuesday trying to convince the jury that Hubers was trying to defend herself, or that she intentionally and methodically fired six shots into Ryan Poston's body.

Hubers claims she shot Poston six times because she didn't want to see him die and wanted to put him out of his misery.

She has been behind bars since her first murder conviction in 2015. She was sentenced to 40 years, but a juror was a convicted felon and should not have been allowed to serve in the trial.
