New trial for Fields

Ashley Fields

DOUBLE SPRINGS - Circuit Judge Lee Carter has ordered that Ashley Brooke Fields--who was sentenced on Sept. 12, to 25 years in the state penitentiary after being found guilty of murder/felony murder--did not receive a fair trial and therefore will be granted a new trial.
On Nov. 8, a hearing was held at the Winston County Courtroom, after which Carter issued an order granting Fields a new trial.
