The murder conviction of a northern Kentucky woman in a case that ended with the victim's body being burned has been upheld by the Kentucky Supreme Court.
Three other people were convicted or pleaded guilty to taking part in the killing, which took place after Mayse lured Davis to her apartment with the promise of three-way sex.
Justice Bill Cunningham concluded that Judge Gregory Bartlett erred in allowing jurors to briefly consider inadmissible evidence, but the breach wasn't enough to result in a new trial.
Mayse is serving life in prison with a parole opportunity after 25 years.
