Convictions affirmed in Davis and Saltzman case

Posted: Updated:
LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

The Third Circuit Court of Appeal has affirmed the convictions of Robyn Davis and Carol "Sissy' Saltzman in the murder of Brian Davis, Robyn Davis' husband, in May 2012.

The opinions were released publicly Wednesday.

Defense attorneys had argued that Robyn Davis and Carol Saltzman are not guilty and should be set free – or at least, given a new trial in the murder of Brian Davis.

They claimed it was unfair when the trial was stopped when the prosecutor became ill and allowed to start over five months later. And they argued the evidence presented was woefully inadequate.

One of the judges on the three-judge panel dissented, however.

Robyn Davis and Carol Saltzman are serving life sentences in prison.
