Haysom pleaded guilty as an accessory to the murder of her parents and is serving a 90- year prison term.
Soering was sentenced to two life terms for stabbing to death Derek and Nancy Haysom.
Although he initially confessed to the crime, Soering later claimed someone else committed the murders.
Now he says prosecutors tried to hide evidence that could have supported that claim.
