(MUNCIE) - Prosecutors have rejected an effort by a woman seeking to effectively cut in half her 100-year prison sentence on two counts of murder from a 1989 attack in Muncie.

49-year-old Suzanne Rainey asked a Delaware County judge to modify her sentence, saying she regretted her crime and is suffering from cirrhosis.

Rainey and Samuel Redwine were convicted of killing 33-year-old Donald Smith and 23-year-old Alma Conley on New Year's Day 1989 in an apartment above a gun shop on the city's south side. Redwine died in prison in 1992.

The Star Press reports Deputy Prosecutor Eric Hoffman wrote the judge that prosecutors objected to any reduction of Rainey's sentence.

Under state law, prosecutors must agree on most sentence changes pursued more than a year after a conviction.
