Kuebler asks for new trial

Posted: Updated:
JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Convicted murderer Charles Kuebler is asking Hinds County Judge Winston Kidd for a new trial.

Kuebler was found guilty and sentenced to life for the shooting death of Tamara Stuckey in December of 2012.

Kuebler's attorneys are arguing that some evidence, including a gun residue test that returned positive results on Stuckey's hands, was not presented till trial, and was withheld from the grand jury.

Defense attorneys argue that Stuckey shot herself, and he would not have been indicted, if the grand jury had reviewed that evidence.

They also argue that his attorney, Tom Royals was not healthy and was unable to represent him effectively.

Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith says their conviction was based on facts presented in the case, and that the defense's suicide theory was already argued in court.

Judge Kidd says he will take the arguments under review and present a ruling within 10 days.
