Arkansas Anchorwoman Killer Facing Death

An Arkansas man has been convicted of killing Anne Pressly, the 26 year-old Arkansas TV anchorwoman with a small role in the movie W who was attacked and stabbed in her home last year. The motive was not grand.

When the attack first happened in October of 2008, there was speculation that Pressly's role as an Ann Coulter-like figure in W might have had something to do with it. Turns out, no:

In various confessions made to the police, Mr. Vance said he went to Ms. Pressly's neighborhood looking to steal laptop computers. After entering her home through a Dutch door she left open for her dogs, Mr. Johnson said, Mr. Vance found the computer he sought - and Ms. Pressly.
