Ex-Ala. prof wants to be tried in brother's death

BOSTON (AP) - October 2, 2012

Court documents filed by Bishop's lawyer say she objects to a decision by Norfolk District Attorney Michael Morrissey to decline to prosecute her in the killing of 18-year-old Seth Bishop.

Attorney Larry Tipton says Bishop wants to prove at trial that she had a "loving and caring relationship" with her brother and that the shooting was accidental.

Morrissey said last week that he decided not to move forward because she has already received life sentence in the Alabama killings.

Bishop claims she accidentally shot her brother while trying to unload her father's shotgun in the family's Braintree home.
