VA: $8M in Case of Woman Who Froze to Death

A Virginia jury in Montross has ordered a restaurant owner to pay $8M to the daughters of the man's wife, who froze to death on their property in 2010.  The woman's body was found partially covered with snow about 80 yards from the couple's house.  The jury foreman reported that jurors believed the woman's death could have been prevented if defendant/husband had done more to find her; defendant did not report her disappearance for 48 hours.  Virginia Lawyers' Weekly has the story.
