On Wednesday, a Wake County jury sentenced Donovan Richardson to life in prison for his role in a 2014 double murder. He is one of three men accused in the crime of murdering two elderly men at their home in Fuquay Varina. One of the other men pleaded guilty and will serve life in prison, and the other has yet to be sentenced but pleaded guilty to being an accessory to the murder.
Richardson’s trial marks the 9th capital trial in Wake County in a row to end in a life sentence. It has been 10 years since a Wake County Jury has sent someone to death row.
