Texas Appeals Court Upholds Thornburg Murder Conviction
The Texas Second District Court of Appeals has upheld the murder conviction of Jeremy Thornburg. Thornburg was found guilty of the murder of Candice Shields in October 2014.
Newschannel 6 has obtained court documents regarding Thornburg’s appeal of his conviction. The appeal hearing was held August 6th in Fort Worth.
According to the documents, Thornburg alleged that there was insufficient evidence to support his conviction. He also claimed that the trial court made a mistake by not suppressing certain evidence. Thornburg also said the trial court abused its discretion by admitting the state's expert testimony.
The appeals court overruled Thornburg's claims and upheld his murder conviction and life sentence.
Candice Shields disappeared in December of 2011. Her body has never been found.
