Ind. Decisions - Transfer denied in John Myers II appeal

Reportedly, transfer has been denied re the May 30th Court of Appeals decision in the case of John R. Myers, II v. State of Indiana (see 5/30/08 ILB summary here). Myers was convicted in 2006 of killing IU student Jill Berman. See a long list of ILB entries on the case here.

From the AP report:

MARTINSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — The Indiana Supreme Court will not hear the appeal of the man convicted in the 2000 slaying of 19-year-old Indiana University student Jill Behrman.

Chief Justice Randall Shepard says the supreme court justices reviewed and discussed the case before rejecting the appeal of John Myers II.

The official Clerk's transfer list, which lists the transfers granted and denied for this week, will not be available until Monday. (Yes, it used to be available on Friday afternoons. I'm told the Court generally conferences on Thursdays.)
