TWINFALLS -- The evidence portion of the Sarah Johnson hearing has wrapped up.

The purpose of the hearing is to determine whether the convicted killer should get a retrial.

Johnson was convicted in 2005 by a jury of murdering her parents in 2003, but still maintains she did not pull the trigger.

Johnson's attorney Christopher Simms tried to make the case that her former attorney gave her inadequate representation and that she deserves to have another jury trial.

That decision won't happen for a few more months.

The judge has to review more than 6,000 documents,and may not make a ruling until April 2011.

Johnson is currently serving two life sentences without the possibility for parole.
