Maine’s highest court has upheld the conviction of a man serving life in prison for a triple killing in northern Maine.
23-year-old Thayne Ormsby was found guilty last year of stabbing to death two men and a boy in 2010.
Ormsby’s lawyers appealed to the Maine Supreme Court, claiming Ormsby’s confession was not voluntary.
They also said the trial in Houlton should have been moved to a different location and the jury didn’t receive proper instructions before issuing their verdict.
But the high court disagreed with those arguments.
