Victoria Henneberry had her second-degree murder conviction appeal dismissed by the Nova Scotia Court of Appeal Thursday.
Henneberry argued she panicked when she pleaded guilty to murdering Loretta Saunders two years ago.
Saunders, an Inuk woman, was murdered inside her Halifax apartment in February 2014. Her body was later found along a highway in New Brunswick.
Henneberry was arrested later in Ontario with her boyfriend, and accomplice, Blake Leggette, who pleaded guilty to first-degree murder.
