A Mathews mother who stabbed her two children to death returned to Lafourche Parish on Monday, requesting through her attorney that the jurors who convicted her be questioned about possible misconduct.
The Courier reports state District Judge Jerome Barbera of Thibodaux denied Amy Hebert's request.
Hebert was sentenced to life in prison in 2009 after jurors bypassed a death sentence but found her guilty of the Aug. 20, 2007, murders of Camille, 9, and Braxton, 7. The former teacher's aide at Lockport Lower Elementary School claimed a voice told her to kill her children.
She is serving two life sentences at the Louisiana Correctional Institute for Women in St. Gabriel.
Both of her appeals, to the state 1st Circuit Court of Appeal and the state Supreme Court, were denied.
