PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Maine's highest court has rejected a New Hampshire man's request for a new trial in the killing of his former fiancee.
Jason Twardus of Rochester, N.H., contends prosecutors never shared evidence about possible alternate suspects in the killing of 30-year-old nursing student Kelly Gorham in 2007. He also says more evidence emerged after his trial.
But the Maine Supreme Judicial Court said Tuesday that the evidence wouldn't have changed the outcome.
Gorham was living in Alfred, Maine, when she disappeared. Her body was found a month later buried on property in northern New Hampshire owned by Twardus' father.
Prosecutors said Twardus was upset over their breakup. He's serving a 38-year prison sentence.
