Kaylee Weisenberg's attorney looks to motion for new trial, friends say she's no murderer

The woman convicted of killing a CHP officer will have to wait to find out how long she will spend behind bars. Twenty-three-year-old Kaylee Weisenberg's sentencing hearing was continued Thursday after her attorney requested time to review transcripts in order to motion for a new trial.

Last month a jury convicted her of second-degree murder and gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated. She was speeding on South River Road in Paso Robles last June when she hit and killed veteran CHP Officer Brett Oswald. Still, Weisenberg's friends insist it was an accident.

"She's in constant prayer for the Oswald family and is tremendously remorseful about it," said Yvonne French, who is a friend of Weisenberg.

Weisenberg faces 15 years to life in prison. The case goes back to court in early November.
