NC Supreme Court OK To Take Raleigh Murder Trial

RALEIGH, N.C. North Carolina's highest court has agreed to consider whether a Raleigh man convicted by jurors of killing his pregnant wife in 2006 should get a new trial that a lower court ordered in April.


The state Supreme Court announced Wednesday it had granted the request by state attorneys for justices to review the case of Jason Lynn Young.


The Court of Appeals in April vacated Young's 2012 first-degree murder conviction for the death of his wife, Michelle, because it said the trial judge shouldn't have allowed evidence about a wrongful death lawsuit and a child custody complaint. Young remains behind bars.


The three-judge Court of Appeals ruling was unanimous, so the Supreme Court wasn't obligated to review the case.


An earlier trial ended in a mistrial when the jury deadlocked.
