HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -
A jury found Amy Bishop-Anderson guilty of capital murder.
The judge sentenced her to life without parole.
The high profile trial of guilty University of Alabama-Huntsville shooter Amy Bishop-Anderson began on Monday around 10 a.m. in a Madison County courtroom.
Fire marshal, Bobby Rollins, was at the court to make sure the room and hallway wouldn't overcrowd.
Bishop-Anderson shot six people, killing three, on the campus of UAH in 2010.
She pleaded guilty to capital murder and attempted murder on September 11, but state law requires capital murder pleas still go before a jury.
On Monday, Bishop-Anderson entered the courtroom dressed in an orange jail jumpsuit with shackles on her hands and feet.
Judge Alan Mann said before someone can be judged guilty in a capital murder trial, there must be a jury finding.
The death penalty was taken off the table in this case.
Bishop-Anderson was convicted of one count of capital murder in connection with the shooting that took place on the UA-Huntsville campus in 2010.
The three people she killed were Dr. G. K. Podila, the chairman of the Department of Biological Sciences, and two associates, Dr. Maria Ragland Davis and Dr. Adriel Johnson.
The three she injured were Dr. Joseph Leahy, Stephanie Monticello, and Dr. Luis Rogelio Cruz-Vera.
