Susan Wright was convicted of first-degree murder of her husband Jeffrey Wright, 34 in 2003
Wright was dubbed the 'Blue-eyed Butcher' because of the brutality of her crime.
She would not comment when approached by a local television news crew from WPXI.
'I would just like privacy. Please respect that,' Wright said. 'I'm sure that y'all can understand, but don't do this to my family. Even if you do it to me, don't do this to them, please.'
Wright was convicted in 2004 and sentenced to 25 years in prison but in 2009 a judge ruled that she had not been assisted properly by legal counsel and a new sentencing hearing was ordered which knocked off five years of her penalty.
