Crystal Boyett, a 41-year-old woman sentenced to 20 years for killing a pregnant Lumberton woman and her teenaged sister, filed a notice Friday in the Ninth Court of Appeals that indicates she will appeal the jury's conviction and sentencing. Boyett was tried only for Burns' death because District Attorney David Sheffiedl, who prosecuted the case, opted to try Boyett on one count so that he could bring charges in the deaths of Tyson and Sterling if he did not secure a guilty verdict. The sisters' mother, Dawn Sterling, was severely injured in the collision and remained hospitalized for months with a collapsed lung and several other internal and external injuries.
