HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

The Madison County District Attorney's office has until Monday to file a brief in opposition to Amy Bishop Anderson's appeal.

Bishop Anderson admitted to shooting three colleagues at UAH in February 2010. Three of the victims died.

Bishop Anderson pleaded guilty to three counts of attempted murder and accepted a plea deal on the capital murder charge. Alabama law requires a capital murder plea to go before a jury. The jury found Bishop Anderson guilty and she was sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Shortly after sentencing, Bishop Anderson notified the court she planned to appeal that verdict.

The appeal states the court did not verbally inform Bishop Anderson she had the right to withdraw her plea.

The appeal states Bishop Anderson was not asked if she had any objections to her defense team or the way they handled her case.

The state is entitled to an extension of the deadline to file the brief.

    A deadly virus is threatening the crawfish industry in Southwest Louisiana. It's called white spot syndrome virus and it was first discovered in Thailand, but somehow it made its way to ponds in South Louisiana and specialists are struggling to find the funds to research a solution.  “The catch was increasing and increasing and then it dropped 70% and that's when you saw the dead crawfish floating in the water,” said a crawfish farmer of 34 years, Ian Garbarino.
