TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – The Kansas Supreme Court has upheld the conviction of a man convicted of killing a Topeka lawyer.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the Kansas Supreme Court on Friday upheld the convictions of Jimmy Jermal Netherland, who was found guilty of killing Natalie Gibson during an attempted holdup behind her home in 2011.
Netherland appealed convictions for first-degree felony murder, attempted aggravated robbery and other charges. Netherland contended in part that there was insufficient evidence to support his convictions.
The Supreme Court found Netherland’s claim of insufficiency of the evidence completely meritless.
