A former nurse convicted of killing her husband is going to get another chance to convince the state Supreme Court that she deserves a new trial.
Thirty-seven-year-old Michelle Michael, who is now representing herself, wants the state's only appellate court to overturn her 2007 conviction. Michael argues her lawyers did a poor job representing her.
Michael was convicted of murder and arson in the 2005 death of her husband, James Michael. He'd been injected with a lethal dose of a paralyzing surgical drug. The couple's house was then set on fire.
In September, the court unanimously refused Michelle Michael's appeal. Court spokeswoman Jennifer Bundy says the justices will review Michael's latest filing November 12.
Michael is serving a life prison term, with the chance for parole after 20 years.
