HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — A former professor who killed three colleagues and wounded three more at the University of Alabama at Huntsville is apologizing.

Amy Bishop Anderson says she is "terribly sorry" for her victims and her own family in a hand-written court document filed earlier this month.

WAFF-TV (http://bit.ly/1Gf5P5e ) reports the one-time educator included her first apology in her latest court filing challenging her conviction in the 2010 shooting.

Bishop Anderson pleaded guilty in 2012 to opening fire during a faculty meeting and shooting six colleagues in a conference room at UAH.

The biologist waived her right to appeal with the guilty plea, but she has been challenging the conviction ever since.

She also shot and killed her brother in their Massachusetts home in 1986 but claimed it was an accident.
