Tammy Goforth is appealing her convictions of second degree murder and unlawfully causing bodily harm.
The 39 year old was sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 17 years earlier this month in connection with the death of a four year old girl and harming her two year old sister. Tammy’s husband Kevin was convicted on a lesser charge of manslaughter in the same case.
Goforth in her appeal states she wishes to have a second chance of explaining herself.
She adds that if her appeal is granted, she wants the trial to be by judge alone.
While Tammy has filed an appeal, there has been no appeal from Kevin at this time.
