Convicted Murderer Gets New Trial
Convicted murderer Kimberly Faust will be getting a new trial. The mother of three was convicted of killing two people on a road outside Palmyra in April 2000. Prosecutors said she killed her estranged husband's girlfriend, Shannon Bluhm, and a good samaritan, Robert Parminter, who tried to save her.
The high court agreed with Faust's lawyers that her trial judge erred in allowing testimony about her past aggressive, hostile and violent behavior. Channel 8 Eyewitness news contacted Bill Parminter, the brother of one of the victims and he told us, quote, “Our family is stunned and sickened by today's (Friday's) decision.”
Faust was initially convicted on two counts of first-degree murder.
