The court on Wednesday rejected her appeals -- including lack of evidence, improper evidence, prosecutorial misconduct and ineffective counsel.

Hilberling testified during her trial that she and her husband were arguing and that she feared for her safety as the dispute escalated.

She is currently serving out her sentence at the Mabel Bassett Correctional Center in Mcloud.
