The British consulate was not notified of Linda's arrest, nor that she was being charged with capital murder, and was therefore not able to assist with her case at this crucial stage. A catastrophically flawed trial led to her death sentence in February 2002. Since then, Reprieve has gathered significant evidence which - if presented at her trial - Reprieve believes could have proved her innocence.
In this interview with BBC Radio 5 Live, Linda talks about life in prison, the case and her fight for the right to live.
