A Caldwell County mother’s murder conviction was upheld in the State Court of Appeals yesterday.
Janet Bell Hall was convicted of first-degree murder in the 2004 shooting death of her son, Eric, and the attempted first-degree murder for shooting her 16-year-old daughter.
Hall’s husband discovered his son dead on February 26, 2004 and his daughter wounded in a bathtub.
At the 2005 criminal trial, Hall’s defense attorneys said an antidepresseant drug impaired her judgment.
Hall’s lawyers alleged several aspects of the initial trial were unfair, including portions of the prosecution’s closing statement.Hall’s challenge was rejected.
