PHOENIX -- A unanimous Arizona Supreme Court ruling upheld the murder convictions and death sentences of a former border activist for the killings of a man and his 9-year-old daughter during a 2009 home invasion.

Shawna Forde was convicted in 2011 of first-degree murder in the shootings of 29-year-old Raul Flores and Brisenia Flores in Arivaca in southern Arizona.

Authorities said Forde had planned the invasion and robbery of the Flores home, which she believed contained drugs, weapons and money. The Supreme Court's ruling refered to Raul Flores as a reputed drug dealer.

Prosecutors said Forde intended to use the proceeds of the home invasion to fund a border-watch group.

Forde also received various prison terms on other convictions, including one for attempted first-degree murder of Flores' wife.
