Emerson Denied New Trial

WAUSAU (WAOW)--A Marathon County judge rejects calls for a wausau man convicted of murder to get a new trial.

James Emerson claimed his attorney failed to defend him during his trial.

A jury convicted him of killing Rhonda Mertes.

She was beaten and left to die near the Wisconsin River back in 1999.
