The state Supreme Court has refusal to consider an appeal from one of the Greensburg Six found guilty in the torture killing of a disabled woman in 2010.

Angela Marinucci, who was 17, was found guilty of first-degree murder in the slaying of Jennifer Daughtery, 30. Marinucci filed a petition asking the state Supreme Court to consider an appeal in the case, but in a one-sentence order announced Tuesday the request was denied.

Prosecutors said Marinucci, now 21, instigated the killing. Following her trial in May 2011, she was sentenced to serve life in prison.

However, because she was a juvenile at the time of the crime, Marinucci falls under a 2012 U.S. Supreme Court ruling making mandatory life prison terms for juvenile offenders unconstitutional. A new sentencing hearing was on hold pending her appeal.
