MANSFIELD, Texas — A 27-year-old woman convicted in the 2003 murders of a Mansfield couple felt relief Tuesday when her death sentence is officially reduced to a life sentence.

Visiting Judge Steve Herod has accepted the sentencing agreement reached by prosecutors and the defense attorney of Chelsea Richardson, for the murders of Rick and Suzanna Wamsley.

In November, the state’s highest criminal court overturned the death sentence for Richardson. She was condemned by a Tarrant County jury in 2005 for the deaths of her boyfriend’s parents in Mansfield.
