Huggins’ Death Sentence Vacated

Titus Huggins was arrested for armed robbery, criminal conspiracy and the murder of Hazel Weaver on March 10, 1994. In 1995, his first trial ended in a mistrial. In 1996, he was convicted and sentenced to death, and in 2005 his sentence was overturned by Circuit Court Judge John M. Milling because his attorneys were found to be ineffective. On Monday, Nov. 10, 2014, his sentence was changed to life in prison with the possibility of parole. — condensed  from an article by Tonya Root in The State
