Man Convicted in Dancer's Death
A man convicted of fatally stabbing a Beckley dancer will spend the rest of his life in prison. A Raleigh County jury deliberated less than 40 minutes before finding 33-year old Jeremy Lambert guilty of first-degree murder. The jury recommended life without mercy, meaning Lambert has no chance for parole. Prosecutors say Lambert stabbed his girlfriend, 35-year old Cyan Maroney 23 times at her Beckley home on Oct. 2, 2011. Maroney was a dancer with the West Virginia Dance Company. Defense lawyers said Lambert suffered from post-traumatic stress order after he was deployed to Kuwait.
