La Supreme Court upholds murder convictions

LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) - The Louisiana Supreme Court has upheld the convictions of two women found guilty of killing a man whose bullet-riddled body was found south of Lake Charles in 2009.

The justices voted 6-1 not to hear appeals for 52-year-old Robyn Little Davis and 47-year-old Carol Noland Saltzman.

Both women are serving life sentences for second-degree murder convictions in the death of Davis' husband, Brian Davis.

Prosecutors used circumstantial evidence to tie them to the crime, saying possible motives were financial woes, Brian Davis' extra-marital affairs and life insurance money.

Defense attorney Glen Vamvoras tells the American Press that the central issue of double jeopardy could be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court.

He did not say whether he and Shane Hinch will appeal.
