A woman who was convicted of second-degree murder for the 1997 shotgun slaying of a Newton County woman has been denied parole.

Beverly Ann Guehrer, 50, and Alis Ben Johns, 48, were arrested in April of 1997 at a cabin near Cole Camp after an extensive manhunt.

The pair had been sought for a series of murders and home invasion burglaries that began in October of 1996 and stretched until their arrests.

Killed in the crime spree were Tommy Stewart of Pulaski County; Leonard Voyles of Camden County and Wilma Bragg of Stark City.

Guehrer, who was convicted of Braggs murder, is scheduled to be released from prison in 2014.
