Woman in fatal Texas teen love triangle loses court appeal

🕐 1 min read

HOUSTON (AP) — A federal appeals court has rejected an appeal from Diane Zamora, the former Naval Academy midshipman serving a life sentence for the 1995 slaying of Mansfield High School student Adrianne Jones in the notorious “Texas cadet” murder case.

Zamora’s former boyfriend, Air Force Academy cadet David Graham, was also convicted of murder.

Zamora appealed to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals after a lower court refused her civil rights lawsuit against Texas prison officials. She argued her move from protective custody at one prison to the general population at another threatened her safety because of animosity from inmates due to the high-profile nature of her case.

Zamora, now 40, and Graham were each sentenced in 1998 to life in prison  for the jealousy-driven killing of Jones in a wooded area near Joe Pool Lake.
