HUNSTVILLE, AL (WAFF) -
The Alabama Criminal Court of Appeals granted the Alabama Attorney General's office an extension for the deadline to file an appellate 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 deadline for the state's appellate brief is March 11.
