Lockhart: Request Denied 

Justice Thomas Warren rejected the request by Stephen Lockhart for either a reversal of his conviction, or a new trial.

Lockhart was convicted in 2001 of killing Andrea Lockhart.

Prosecutors proved that he killed her with a piece of lumber at the boatyard in Southwest Harbor where he worked.

He put her body in a box, filled it with spray foam and covered it with fiberglass.

Lockhart says his lawyer was ineffective because he failed to get a psychological evaluation.

Lockhart is currently serving a 47-year sentence.
