Montezuma woman appealing murder case to Supreme Court

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (WALB) - A Montezuma woman facing the death penalty for the murders of two family members is appealing her case to the Georgia Supreme Court.

54-year-old Lillian Walker says her constitutional right to a speedy trial has been violated.

She was arrested two years ago after investigators say she stabbed 85-year-old Lillian Graves and 65-year-old Agnes Stewart to death in their Ft. Valley home.

Prosecutors say robbery was the motive.

No word on when justices might rule or when Walker could go on trial.
