MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A Wisconsin appeals court has denied the request for a new trial made by a man convicted of killing a Green Bay paper mill worker in 1992.
Rey Moore was one of six men convicted of killing their co-worker Tom Monfils. His body was found in a pulp vat at a Green Bay paper mill.
Moore's attorney Byron Lichstein argued that the conviction should be overturned because of questionable testimony by a prison inmate who recanted his testimony that Moore participated in beating Monfils.
But the 3rd District Court of Appeals on Thursday agreed with the lower court that it was unlikely a jury would overturn its conviction based on the new evidence.
Lichstein says he's disappointed in the ruling and considering an appeal.
