Woman death row inamate seeks vacated sentence
Christa Pike is the only woman on Tennessee’s death row. Now she is appealing to a federal judge to vacate her conviction citing that her constitutional rights were violated during her trial. Pike faces execution for torturing and killing Colleen Slemmer who was a rival in a love triangle. Pike says in the petition that when the crime occurred she was a mentally ill, cognitively impaired, immature adolescent at the time. One question not up to the federal judge is if her case is vacated will she then face charges for assaulting another inmate while in prison with the help of Natasha Cornett. Cornett was one of six that pled guilty to killing three members of a family and permanently injuring another at a rest stop in Greeneville. (CC)
