Linda Carty: British woman on death row in Texas 'refused new trial'
Friday 2 September 2016

A Texas judge has refused a British woman on death row a retrial, which could have change the outcome of her 2002 murder conviction.

Lawyers for Linda Carty argued that she was denied due process when prosecutors did not disclose a false witness statement claiming she had that masterminded a kidnapping and murder in 2001.

According to The Houston Chronicle, Carty was sentenced to death after she was convicted of killing her neighbour, Joana Rodriguez, in May 2001.

Ms Rodriguez was found tied-up and gagged in the boot of a car after she and her newborn baby were snatched from her home in Houston.

Judge David Garner said prosecutors still had overwhelming evidence of the defendant's guilt from other sources despite hearing Carty's appeal.

He admitted that prosecutors should have turned over their witness statements during the trial in 2002 but said it was not likely to have changed the course of the conviction.

Assistant District Attorney Josh Reiss told the newspaper on Thursday: "These were serious and unfounded allegations of misconduct against two very senior prosecutors who have done nothing for the past two decades except protect and serve people of Harris County. And this recommendation serves to uphold their fine reputations."

Carty, who was born on St Kitts when it was under British rule, reportedly led police to the vehicle where Ms Rodriguez was found asphyxiated.

Her baby was rescued.

Although, Carty denies she was involved in the murder, prosecutors claim she planned the kidnapping with three other men.

Her alleged accomplices did not receive death sentences for their parts in the crime.

Prosecutors claimed that Carty wanted Rodriguez's newborn son after suffering several miscarriages.

She was convicted under the Texas "law of parties" which states that a person is criminally liable if one "solicits, encourages, directs, aids, or attempts to aid the other person to commit the offence".
