In May 2014 Pike's Lawyers entered an appeal in the federal court system. Her lawyers sought a commutation of the sentence from death to prison on the following grounds: ineffective assistance of counsel; Pike suffered from mental illness; and capital punishment as administered in Tennessee is unconstitutional. In a 61 page ruling by U.S. District Judge Harry S. Mattice Jr. issued on March 11 2016 all grounds were rejected and the requested commutation was denied. On August 22 2019, having heard the same appeal by Pike's lawyers on October 1 2018, the three judge United States Court of Appeals For The Sixth Circuit panel unanimously upheld the lower court ruling and denied relief.


In March 2012, it was revealed that Pike had made escape plans involving corrections officer Justin Heflin and a New Jersey man named Donald Kohut. Though it has never been determined how it exactly began, Kohut who worked as a personal trainer and was then in his early thirties entered into a letter writing correspondence with Pike around the beginning of 2011. By July of that year Kohut was making the close to 1800 mile (by car) round trip from Flemington NJ to Nashville TN to visit Pike in person on visiting days once or twice a month. Eventually Kohut communicated a plan for her escape to Pike and enlisted the help of corrections office Heflin who agreed to participate in return for cash and gifts. Because of "security concerns" the Tennessee Department of Corrections didn't and won't provide much in the way of details about the plan, however the eventually unsealed indictment laid out a scenario where a prison key would be traced and then a duplicate created. Early in 2012 (again the TDOC is vague on details) prison personnel received information about the escape plot. This led to the attempted prison break being thwarted by a joint investigation involving the Tennessee Department of Corrections, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and the New Jersey State Police.According to The TBI the plan was not very far along when uncovered and "the jailbreak was not imminent".

In March 2012 Kohut was arrested and charged with bribery and conspiracy to commit escape, while Heflin was arrested and charged with bribery, official misconduct and conspiracy to commit escape. Pike was not charged and it was unclear to the investigators if she was or was not an active participant in the consipracy other than being aware of it.

On May 31, 2012 Kohut was sentenced to seven years in prison the time to be served at the Tennessee State Northeast Correctional Complex. Heflin who cooperated with authorities after his arrest served no prison time but was terminated from his job with the TDOC.


Following the guilty verdict, Pike "launched, cancelled and then re-launched" an appeal of her conviction in the Tennessee state courts. In June 2001, then again in June 2002, against the advice of her lawyers, Pike asked the courts to drop her appeal and sought to be executed via electrocution. Criminal Court Judge Mary Beth Leibowitz granted the request and an execution date of August 19, 2002, was set. Pike soon thereafter changed her mind and on July 8, 2002, defense lawyers filed a motion to allow the appeal process to continue. This motion was denied. However, on August 2, 2002, a three judge state appeals court panel ruled that the proceedings should be continued and the execution was not carried out. In December 2008, Pike's latest request for a new trial was turned down and she was returned to death row. With this denial Pike's allowed appeals under the rules and procedures of the State of Tennessee's criminal justice system were exhausted.


On August 24, 2001, Pike (with alleged assistance from inmate Natasha Cornett) attacked and attempted to strangle fellow inmate Patricia Jones with a shoe string, and nearly succeeded in choking her to death. She was convicted of attempted first degree murder on August 12, 2004. Although it is the position of the Tennessee Department of Corrections that Cornett assisted in this crime, their investigators concluded there was insufficient evidence to charge her with helping Pike attack Jones.


During Pike's trial, the prosecution was aided by evidence and Pike's confession. Pike was charged with murder and conspiracy to commit murder. On March 22, 1996, after only a few hours of deliberation, Pike was found guilty on both counts. On March 30, Pike was sentenced to death by electrocution for the murder charge and 25 years in prison for the conspiracy charge. Shipp received a life sentence plus 25 years with the possibility of parole in 2031. Peterson, who had turned informant, received probation for pleading guilty to being an accessory after the fact.


On January 12, 1995, Pike, Shipp, Peterson, and Slemmer signed out of the dormitory and proceeded to the woods, where Slemmer was told they wanted to make peace by offering her some marijuana. Upon arrival at the secluded location, Slemmer was attacked by Pike and Shipp while Peterson acted as lookout. Per later court testimony, for the next thirty minutes Slemmer was taunted, beaten, and slashed, and a pentagram was carved in her chest. Finally, Pike smashed Slemmer's skull with a large chunk of asphalt, killing her. Pike kept a piece of her victim's skull.
