Ripley County Woman awaits sentencing

Feb 01, 2013 -- 5:12pm


A jury trial has ended in a guilty verdict for a Ripley County woman charged with two counts of first-degree murder. A Shannon County jury found Youngblood guilty late Thursday night on two counts of murder in the first degree in connection with the deaths of Ed Atkinson and Bonnie Chase back in July of 2010.  She is the first of four defendants to stand trial, and her husband David pled guilty in June 2012 of killing not only Atkinson and Chase, but two other people as well.  She is being held without bond awaiting sentencing.
