In an update to THIS STORY, the conviction of an accused killer in Lafayette Parish has been upheld by the Louisiana Supreme Court. In 2010, Mary Henderson Trahan was convicted of second-degree murder concerning the shooting death of her live-in boyfriend George Barbu.

Prosecutors appealed after an appeals court ruled the evidence did not support her conviction. But the court has now struck that down, saying a rational juror could find from the evidence that Trahan had "specific intent to kill or to inflict great bodily harm" to Barbu.
