Court of Appeals denies appeal from Holbrook man convicted driving drunk and killing Boy Scout
A Holbrook man convicted of fatally killing a Boy Scout while driving drunk had his appeal denied, according to court documents.
The highest appeals court in New York refused to hear Thomas Murphy's appeal to overturn his conviction.
Prosecutors say Murphy spent hours drinking at a Manorville golf course before crashing into a Boy Scout troop walking on the road, killing 12-year-old Andrew McMorris.
Murphy's attorney attempted to argue that the first trial was biased.
Murphy is currently serving 8 and a third years to 25 years in prison.
