ERIE -- The U.S. Supreme Court rejected an Erie woman's appeal of her conviction and life sentence for her role in a bizarre bank robbery plot that left a pizza deliveryman dead when a collar bomb he was forced to wear exploded.
The Erie Times-News reported today that the high court refused to hear Marjorie Diehl-Armstrong's appeal of a 3rd U.S. Circuit Court opinion earlier this year that a judge properly refused to suppress statements in the case and properly determined she was mentally competent to stand trial.
She's serving life in prison.
A federal court convicted Diehl-Armstrong of conspiracy and bank robbery charges in November 2010.
Deliveryman Brian Wells was killed when the bomb exploded after the bank robbery in August 2003.
