The convicted killer of Tejano music star Selena has lost an appeal in the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals.
Yolanda Saldivar had asked the court to order her appeal filed nine years ago to move forward, but the state's highest criminal appeals court says it was filed in the wrong county.
The court also said Wednesday that the order Saldivar sought from the court wasn't proper. Saldivar's murder case stemming from the 1995 fatal shooting of Selena in a Corpus Christi motel room was transferred to Harris County.
The appeals court says the appeal should have been filed there.
