Two Texas death row inmates have lost their appeals Wednesday before the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals.

Chelsea Lea Richardson was 19 when authorities said she helped kill her boyfriend's parents in December 2003, so he could inherit a $1.65 million estate.

The victims were Rick and Suzanna Wamsley of Mansfield.

Their son, Andrew Wamsley, was also charged with capital murder. A jury decided the son should be sentenced to life in prison.

Also, the appeals court upheld the conviction and sentence of Taichin Preyor for the 2004 fatal stabbing of a woman in San Antonio.

Jami Tackett was killed during a burglary. Court documents indicate Tackett sold drugs and kept cocaine in a safe in her apartment.
