DES MOINES, Iowa  --  Nicole Finn, the woman convicted of first degree murder after starving her 16-year-old daughter Natalie Finn to death, is now requesting a new trial.

Court records show Finn motioned for a change of venue, as is documented in her handwritten letter to Judge Karen Romano.

In Iowa, a first degree murder sentence is automatically granted an appeal.

The judge is expected to address the motion on Friday.
