MOUNTAIN CITY, TN (AP) - Two women serving life sentences for a double murder over a Facebook spat want a new trial because they say the prosecutor's book about the Tennessee case revealed their attorneys were never given information that would have been helpful.

The Johnson City Press ( ) reports that a judge is scheduled in August to consider an argument by the attorneys for Barbara Potter and her daughter, Jenelle Potter.

The attorneys say they weren't given statements co-defendant Jamie Curd made to investigators prior to testifying against the women.

Curd's statements are mentioned in prosecutor Dennis Brooks' 2016 book "Too Pretty to Live: The Catfishing Murders of East Tennessee."

Prosecutors said 36-year-old Billy Payne and 23-year-old Billie Jean Hayworth were killed in 2012 because Jenelle Potter was "unfriended" by the couple on Facebook.
