Court to hear appeal in freezer murders

March 2, 2008


— The Mississippi Supreme Court has scheduled arguments for April 8 in Lisa Jo Chamberlin's appeal of her capital murder conviction for her role in the torturing and killing of two people in 2004.

The bodies of the murder victims were transported to Kansas in a freezer.

Chamberlin, 35, was sentenced in 2006 in Forrest County. She was one of two people charged in the March 2004 deaths of Linda Heintzelman and Heintzelman's boyfriend, Vernon Hulett.

Their bodies were found inside the freezer at an abandoned farm in Russell County, by law officers who were searching for drugs.
