Amy Bishop wants to be tried in brother’s death

Amy Bishop, a former University of Alabama-Huntsville professor sentenced to life in prison for killing three of her colleagues in a shooting rampage, wants to go on trial in the 1986 death of her brother in Massachusetts, her lawyer said Tuesday.

Larry Tipton said Bishop wants to prove that she had a ‘‘loving and caring relationship’’ with her brother and that the shooting was accidental.
