Appeal denied for Amarillo convicted capital murderer

Amarillo, TX- An appeal for a convicted capital murderer is denied by the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals.

Brittany Holberg, of Amarillo, says she is not guilty of capital murder, because she claims she did not rob her victim, A.B. Towery.

The court says there are no legal provisions to help her appeal.

Holberg remains on death row for the 1996 stabbing death of 80-year-old Towery.
