Murderer Yolanda Saldívar — the woman who killed Selena Quintanilla in 1995 — claims her rights were  violated at the prison where she is serving a life sentence. 

"Primer Impacto," the popular Spanish news program, reports that Saldívar filed a lawsuit against the Mountain View Unit in Gatesville, operated by the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.

Saldívar alleges that the Texas prison has denied her medical care after she fell off her bunk bed.

The lawsuit states that Saldivar requested a different sleeping arrangement in order to accommodate her small stature, weight, and the injuries she sustained after the fall, but claims the prison denied her request.
