CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The father of a man who killed a police officer in Franconia, N.H., in 2007, has lost in his latest attempt to sue the town.

A federal appeals court rejected the lawsuit filed by David Kenney, who said the officer violated Liko Kenney's constitutional rights.

The Caledonian-Record reports a panel of judges at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit in Boston denied a petition for a rehearing earlier this year.

The order upholds a decision by a New Hampshire federal judge to dismiss the suit, citing a lack of evidence.

Liko Kenney fatally shot Police Cpl. Bruce McKay after McKay pulled over his car and pepper-sprayed him. Bystander Gregory Floyd witnessed the shooting, picked up McKay's gun and fatally shot Kenney.
