Taylor Requests New Trial for Boyfriend's Murder

CORPUS CHRISTI - The Flour Bluff woman convicted of killing her ex-boyfriend is now asking a judge for another trial.

In May, District Judge Sandra Watts sentenced Donna Taylor to 20 years in prison for the shooting death of Floyd Scroggin Jr.

Taylor told investigators her gun accidentally fired when it fell out of her purse inside their mobile home on Stingray Street.

She was arrested days after the killing by U.S. Marshals in College Station who say they also found in her in possession of methamphetamine.

Judge Watts hasn't made a decision on the request for a new trial.

In the meantime, Taylor still has to clear up those unresolved drug charges in College Station before she heads to prison for the murder.
