Braintree High School graduate Amy Bishop argued in court documents filed by her lawyer that she should be tried in her brother's 1986 killing following the Norfolk County District Attorney's decision last week not to bring her back to Massachusetts.
The Associated Press reported Tuesday that the former University of Alabama professor wants to be returned to the Commonwealth to face charges that she murdered her 18-year-old brother Seth in the family home.
Norfolk County District Attorney Michael Morrissey announced on Friday that he will not start rendition proceedings, saying that the sentence he would seek against Bishop for first degree murder "is already in place" as a result of an Alabama judge's decision earlier this month.
Bishop pled guilty to killing three colleagues and wounding three others during a meeting in 2010 at the University of Alabama. On Sept. 24, she was sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole.
