Capital murder in woman's '08 death
A Fairfax County jury on Tuesday convicted a Falls Church area man of capital murder in the 2008 bludgeoning and sexual assault of Genevieve Orange. Now the jury will decide if he should be put to death.
They argued that he was so intoxicated by beer and crack cocaine that he didn't have the "willful, deliberate and premeditated" intent to kill Orange, 29, inside her apartment at the Prestwick Apartments in the Seven Corners area.
Prosecutors, meanwhile, argued that Lawlor knew exactly what he was doing.
