Slain Teen's Father Sentenced After Domestic Violence Charge

WYTHEVILLE, Va. (AP) — The father and stepmother of a slain Virginia teenager won’t have to serve any additional jail time after a domestic dispute.

David Madison Lovell and Terri Surratt Lovell were charged in April with unlawful wounding against each other.

Karen Akers, clerk of the Wythe Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court, said David Lovell was sentenced Tuesday to 12 months in jail, with 11 months suspended. Terri Lovell was sentenced to 12 months in jail, with nearly all of it suspended.

Akers said they got credit for time served and won’t have to serve any additional jail time. Akers said the felony charges against them were reduced to misdemeanors.

David Lovell’s daughter, Nicole, was found dead in January. Two former Virginia Tech students have been charged in connection with her slaying.
