Loxley woman denied parole in 2011 stabbing death of husband


MONTGOMERY, Alabama — A Loxley woman sentenced in 2013 for the 2011 stabbing death of her husband has been denied parole by the Alabama Board of Pardons and Paroles in Montgomery.

According to a press release, the Alabama Board of Pardons and Paroles held 27 parole hearings Wednesday, Feb. 3 granting seven paroles and denying 20. Three parole hearings were continued to a later date. The board also held 10 hearings on requests for pardons.

Among those denied was Britnea Leann Myers, now 31, who is currently serving a 20-year sentence on manslaughter charges at the Birmingham Community Work Center.

According to information provided by the Alabama Department of Corrections, Myers has currently served 7 years, 8 months of a 20-year sentence on manslaughter charges. Her minimum release date is June 12, 2033 and she is scheduled for another parole consideration on Feb. 1, 2026.

According to an article published in 2013 by Gulf Coast Media, Myers, then 24, was sentenced in 2013 by Judge J. Langford Floyd after being convicted of the Aug. 14, 2011 stabbing death of her husband, Timothy Myers at their home on Leatherbury Road in Loxley.

In May of 2013, jurors deliberated for three hours before deciding on the lesser option between murder and manslaughter.

According to a press release issued in 2011 by the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office, Timothy Myers, 26, was found at home with a single stab wound to the torso.

He was pronounced dead at South Baldwin Regional Medical Center after being transported by paramedics from the scene.

According to the report, deputies arrived to find Britnea Myers, attempting CPR on the victim and holding a towel over the victim’s wound.  Deputies took over CPR until paramedics arrived and transported him to SBRMC.

Britnea Myers was booked into the Baldwin County Corrections Facility 10 days after the incident. She was released in late August 2011 and electronically monitored under house arrest until the trial, which began May 7 in Baldwin County Circuit Court.
