JACKSON – Edna Mae Sanders, whose conviction in the hot-oil killing of her husband in Hancock County has been overturned, will soon learn if the state plans to appeal the reversal to the Supreme Court or if she will face a new trial.
Sanders is serving a life sentence on a conviction overturned three months ago.
Sanders was found guilty in 2008 of the murder of Sherman Sanders, who died about a week after he was burned at the couple’s Diamondhead home in 2006. The state Court of Appeals overturned the conviction in March.
The attorney general’s office had asked the Appeals Court to reconsider it, but the motion was denied Tuesday. The attorney general’s office has 14 days to appeal it to the state Supreme Court.
