Randy Allen Taylor (pictured) says he also wants an appeal to be considered somewhere other than Nelson County. Taylor has told the Lynchburg News and Advance he thinks the jury that convicted him on May 8th was pressured into returning a guilty verdict. Meanwhile, Nelson County High School has honored 17-year-old Alexis Murphy. The principal and the Nelson County school superintendent presented the diploma she would have received this spring to her relatives. The teenager’s family stood in her place Saturday afternoon and received her diploma.
