No new trial for woman charged with killing two of her sons

CLEVELAND, TN (WRCB) -

A Bradley County mother sentenced to spend the rest of her life in prison will not get a new trial.

In August of 2013, a jury found Natasha Bates guilty in connection with the deaths of her sons, 3-year-old River and 5-year-old Leland.

On Friday the judge ruled on her request for a retrial.   A medical examiner ruled the two died of overheating, likely from being left in a hot car.  Bates had told police the brothers were playing on a slip'n slide.

A jury found her guilty of first degree murder and aggravated child neglect and making meth.
