JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - The U.S. Supreme Court announced it will not review a Mississippi death row inmate’s case after her sentence was reinstated by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals last year.

She and her then-boyfriend, Roger Lee Gillett, convicted for the March 2004 killings of Linda Heintzelman and Vernon Hulett in Hattiesburg.

Their bodies were found in a freezer at an abandoned farm in Kansas.

Gillett also got the death penalty.
