Judge denies new trial request from mom convicted of killing her 2 children

THIBODAUX, LA (WAFB) - A south Louisiana mother convicted of stabbing her two young children to death will not be getting a new trial, for now.

According to published reports, a Lafourche Parish judge denied a request by Amy Hebert, 47, of Mathews, to have her 2009 convictions set aside.

Hebert is currently serving two consecutive life sentences in the women's prison in St. Gabriel.

She was found guilty of stabbing and killing her 9-year-old daughter and 7-year-old son at their home in 2007.
