PORTLAND, Maine — Maine’s highest court hears arguments this week in the appeal of a Maine woman serving a 16-year sentence for beating her husband with a baseball bat and staging it to look like a home invasion.

The Maine Supreme Judicial Court hears arguments Wednesday from an attorney representing Linda Dolloff, who was convicted in 2010 of attempted murder, elevated aggravated assault and filing a false report.

Dolloff is accusing prosecutors of misconduct. She further claims the judge erred in allowing certain evidence and statements at her trial.

Dolloff was convicted of beating her husband in April 2009 while he slept at their Standish home. Prosecutors said she then shot herself in the stomach to make it look like a home invasion. The couple was going through a divorce at the time.
