HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) A Harvard-educated biologist was sentenced to life in prison without parole Monday after being convicted of going on a shooting rampage during a faculty meeting at an Alabama university, killing three colleagues and wounding three others in 2010.
The jury deliberated for about 20 minutes before convicting Amy Bishop. The former professor at the University of Alabama in Hunstville showed no reaction as the verdict was read. She did not speak in court, but her attorney said she has often expressed great remorse to the victims and their families.

Out of the running for head of the Department of Education in obozo’s 2nd term...
“A Harvard-educated biologist...”
If she were a street educated crackhead, she would have a date with the chair. Either that or they really don’t want to execute women in Alabama. Sorry, she is NOT worthy of any sort of chivalry.....
Actually it’s probably a resume enhancer.
Evil twin defense, or maybe Bart Simpson: (I didn't do it, nobody saw me do it, you don't have a witness, you can't prove a thing.)
Or its the: what dead people? those folks are just passed out!
Well just spiffy! We'll just take off the cuffs and let her go then!!
Plus the apparent murder of he brother years before.
Didn’t the locals re-open the investigation into her brother’s “accidental” death? Perhaps there’s still a chance to put her down.
Oh, this is that woman wno was described as a disturbingly intense Obama supporter.
Wonder how that little factoid fell through the cracks, lol? Whoops, forgot all about that, oh well, irrelevant, move on.
Maybe she should have gotten Bernadine Dorne and Bill Ayers legal representation.
Still a bitch no matter how it’s spelled, though.
and they were all rabid liberals I suspect
Hmm. Wonder why she didn’t get the chair? She certainly deserved it.
For a lib-dem, this is “resume enhancement”.
Ah, yes. A far, far better candidate for "Ted Kennedy's Seat" in the US Senate by three.
Alabama has a death penalty. How did she avoid it? She killed three people and her brother in Massachusetts
Why did it take them that long?
Ya gotta take advantage of the coffee and donuts!
I mean, I know this is Yahoo news we are talking about, but I half expected this to be a Dilbert cartoon given the title...
Cold cuts were brought in.
Why did it take them that long?
Probably a couple Obama supporters had second thoughts.
The jury was probably conflicted on the Yankee brother killing charge../sarcasm//
I don’t know.
I have never been summoned to jury duty.
I'd call that a "light punishment for cold-blooded murder of three people."
What about murdering three people constitutes "meeting rampage?" We've so watered down our language that pre-mediated murder equates with shouting, yelling, throwing papers all around the boardroom.
Sort of like murdering 13 people while shouting Allah Akbar equals "workplace violence!"
Maybe mac daddy will send eric, my people, holder riding to his defense on his fire breathing black horse wearing his black suit of a defender of the unjust and toped off with his ever present dunce hat.
