Pa. woman convicted in fiance's wedding day death

Posted: Updated:

ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) - A Pennsylvania woman accused of stabbing her fiance to death on their wedding day has been convicted of murder.

WFMZ-TV reports a jury in Allentown found Na Cola Franklin guilty on Thursday.

Prosecutors say Franklin and 36-year-old Billy Brewster got into an argument early in the morning on Aug. 11, the day they were to be married.

Defense attorney John Waldron says Brewster went home to their Whitehall Township apartment drunk after an impromptu bachelor party. He says Brewster attacked Franklin and then tried to leave with the couple's 9-month-old son.

Waldron argued Franklin grabbed a knife to protect her child.

Prosecutors say the child was not in danger.
