Troy Man Out On Bond While Awaiting New Trial In Murder Of His Wife

TROY, Mo. (AP) – A Lincoln County man sentenced to life in prison for killing  his wife is now out of jail awaiting a new trial.

Forty-five-year-old Russell Faria of Troy was released Tuesday after a relative posted $500,000 bond. A judge granted a new trial on June 5.

Faria’s attorneys claim that newly discovered evidence would have changed the outcome of the trial that led to his first-degree murder conviction in the 2011 stabbing death of Betsy Faria. The order primarily focused on the actions and statements of Pamela Hupp, Betsy Faria’s friend. Betsy Faria had changed the beneficiary on $150,000 of her life insurance to Hupp days before the killing.

Faria’s new trial starts November 2nd.
