MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A state appeals court has refused to grant a new trial for a man convicted of killing a Kaukauna jogger in 2000.
Kenneth Hudson of Little Chute was sentenced to life in prison in 2001 for stabbing 19-year-old Shanna Van Dyn Hoven while she was running near her home.
Hudson raised about four dozen arguments on appeal ranging from problems with his attorneys to evidence tampering.
The 3rd District Court of Appeals ruled that Hudson’s own actions caused problems with his attorneys and his conspiracy theories are “far-fetched.” The court noted that Van Dyn Hoven’s blood was found on Hudson’s hand and on his truck.
Hudson’s attorney didn’t immediately return a message.
