A Harvard-educated biologist was sentenced to life in prison without parole Monday after being convicted of going on a shooting rampage during a faculty meeting at an Alabama university, killing three colleagues and wounding three others in 2010.

The jury deliberated for about 20 minutes before convicting Amy Bishop. The former professor at the University of Alabama in Huntsville showed no reaction as the verdict was read.

The professor apparently was not happy with a tenure decision.

The situation seemed to come to a head in February 2010, when Professor Amy Bishop from University of Alabama at Huntsville took matters to the next level in allegedly “disagreeing” with the tenure process there. University administrators across the country were struck by what has been considered the ultimate stalemate breaker.
