LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) - The Louisiana Supreme Court has upheld the convictions of two women found guilty of killing a man whose bullet-riddled body was found south of Lake Charles in 2009.

The justices voted 6-1 not to hear appeals for 52-year-old Robyn Little Davis and 47-year-old Carol Noland Saltzman.

Both women are serving life sentences for second-degree murder convictions in the death of Davis’ husband, Brian Davis.

Prosecutors used circumstantial evidence to tie them to the crime, saying possible motives were financial woes, Brian Davis’ extra-marital affairs and life insurance money.

Defense attorney Glen Vamvoras tells the American Press (https://bit.ly/1lxivqY ) that the central issue of double jeopardy could be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court.

He did not say whether he and Shane Hinch will appeal.
