CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Pamela Smart has been denied a sentence reduction hearing more than 30 years after her sensational trial that inspired books and the Nicole Kidman movie "To Die For."

Smart was a high school employee when she was accused and eventually convicted of recruiting her teenage lover to kill her husband in 1990.

Smart's request for a hearing was denied Wednesday in a 5-0 vote by the New Hampshire Executive Council.

It's the third time the 54-year-old Smart has asked a council for a hearing, including a 2019 request that was rejected.
