Former professor who admitted to shoot six goes on trial today

Posted: Updated:

(NBC News) - A university professor who admits to shooting six fellow faculty members, killing three goes on trial today.

Amy Bishop-Anderson is accused of shooting fellow University of Alabama faculty members in February 2010.

The 47-year-old pleaded guilty to capital murder and attempted murder on September 11th.

Despite the guilty plea, Alabama law requires capital murder cases still go before a jury.

As part of a plea agreement, Bishop-Anderson will spend the rest of her life in prison.
