    New Hampshire's Executive Council has postponed hearing a sentence reduction appeal from Pamela Smart, who's serving life in prison for plotting with her teenage lover to kill her husband.

    The council decided Wednesday to push back the request until after new council members are sworn in in January.

    Smart is currently in a New York prison in connection with the 1990 murder of her husband, Gregg Smart, in Derry.

    She worked at Winnacunnet High School and acknowledged seducing 16-year-old William Flynn.

    Flynn testified that Smart told him she needed her husband killed because she would lose everything if they divorced.

    Smart has denied playing a role in her husband's death.

    The attorney general is recommending Smart does not receive a sentence reduction.
