Assets held by a former Virginia high school administrator and his estranged wife at the time she was slain will remain frozen until Aug. 5.
The order filed Tuesday in Bedford County Circuit Court is the second extension of a temporary injunction granted in April. The injunction prevents Wesley Earnest and his lawyers from selling or spending assets that Earnest and his wife Jocelyn held.
Earnest was convicted of first-degree murder and a firearms charge earlier this year in the December 2007 slaying of Jocelyn Earnest. His sentencing is set for Sept. 21.
Jocelyn Branham Earnest was born in Morgantown, W.Va., and graduated from West Virginia University. She was a member of the Mountaineer women's basketball team from 1989 to 1992.
