A Jury in Livingston county has found Danielle Allen guilty of Manslaughter. She had been accused of stabbing her boyfriend, Marcus Postel, in Folwerville, November, 2016. The jurors did not buy her argument that the killing was self defense. Among those in the courtroom—Allen’s father who is a state police inspector. Allen was taken to Livingston County jail after the verdict. She will stay there until sentencing, which is scheduled for September—she could get up to 15 years
Livingston county remains abnormally dry, according to the latest report from the U S drought Monitor. That is the category just below a drought—a designation that now includes all of Orleans and half of Genesee counties. This week’s rain didn’t help much and forecasters thing the dry weather should stay with us though the end of the month at least. Dansville July has been about 5 degrees hotter than normal.
