Linda Carty Complained Her Trial Lawyers Were Deficient
by Staff


The Supreme Court has declined to review the case of a death row British woman in Texas for killing a young mother.

On Monday, the justices rejected an appeal from convicted murderer and kidnapper Linda Carty. Carty has complained that her trial lawyers were deficient.

The U.K. government and human rights outlets have assisted Carty's cause.

Carty is among 10 condemned women in Texas. A former teacher from St. Kitts in the British Virgin Islands, Carty was sentenced to death in 2002 for the kidnapping a woman and her baby, and the murder of the mother.

According to prosecutors, Carty drew-up the kidnapping so she could pretend to be the child's mother in an attempt to save the crumbling relationship with her boyfriend. Video below. Comment in the blog here.
