RHINELANDER, Wis. (AP) An Oneida County judge has denied a motion to reduce the sentence of a teen convicted of killing her mother and stepfather in 2015.

Nineteen-year-old Ashlee Martinson appeared by phone from the Taycheedah Correctional Institution on Wednesday. Her attorney, Mark Schoenfeldt, argued Martinson's 23-year sentence was too long, especially considering the years of physical and mental abuse she endured.

WAOW -TV reports Judge Michael Bloom says Martinson still had a choice to kill her parents.

She earlier pleaded guilty to two counts second-degree intentional homicide in the stabbing death of 40-year-old Jennifer Ayers and the shooting death of 37-year-old Thomas Ayers at the family's rural Rhinelander home.
