IUKA, Miss. (WTVA) — A woman charged with capital murder returned to the courtroom where she was convicted 14 years ago for a hearing.

Michelle Byrom made an appearance in Tishomingo County Circuit Court Tuesday morning for a procedural hearing in connection with the Mississippi Supreme Court granted her a new trial.

Byrom was sentenced to death for her role in the shooting death of her husband, Edward Byrom, at his Iuka home in 1999.

Earlier this year, Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood asked for an execution date after the U. S. Supreme Court denied a request to hear her case.

The state's highest court then overturned the conviction and ordered a new trial.

Byrom remains in the Tishomingo County Jail without bond.
