Shayna Hubers: What is next after dramatic Tuesday proceedings?

August 22, 2018 - 9:33am
Tuesday in the Shayna Hubers retrial featured testimony from three women serving prison time with her about what she said to them regarding the fatal shooting of her boyfriend. The testimony was similar to that of Hubers's first trial, which was thrown out after it was found a juror had a prior felony conviction. Hubers and Ryan Poston, 29, dated off and on for a year and a half after meeting through Facebook. Prosecutors say Hubers shot Poston in his Highland Heights condominium in 2012 because he wanted to end the relationship. The defense says she shot him in self-defense. 2018-08-22T08:06:48-04:00
