Killer Jennifer Clark seeks new trial

By Walter Geiger Convicted killer Jennifer Clark was scheduled to be in court here Thursday seeking a new trial. Clark has dismissed former attorney Suesan Miller and is now represented by Macon attorney Granville Powers at taxpayer expense. Powers requested a continuance for the Thursday hearing in order to further prepare Clark’s case and that motion was granted. Clark was convicted Feb. 4, 2011 of malice murder, two counts felony murder, concealing the death of another, tampering with evidence and two counts of first degree cruelty to children following a jury trial that was moved to Butts County due to pre-trial publicity. She was charged in connection with the death of her estranged husband Donald Clark who disappeared from his home on Crane Road here on November 19, 2008. His body was found on Christmas Eve 2008 in a Redbone cornfield by then-sheriff Joe Buice. He had been beaten to death with a metal baseball bat. Clark will appear before Judge Tommy Wilson who sentenced her to life in prison plus 60 years after the guilty verdicts were delivered. At the time, Judge Wilson said he wished he could give Clark the death penalty. A codefendant in the case, Jennifer Clark’s lover Michael Yost, is serving a life sentence. He testi­fied against Clark in her trial.
