Court upholds conviction, life sentence of Oklahoma killer

(Oklahoma Department of Corrections)

The Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals has upheld the conviction and sentence of life without parole of a Yukon man.

The court on Thursday rejected appeals by 40-year-old Nicholas Moody.

The court rejected claims by Moody of insufficient evidence, improper removal of blacks as potential jurors and improper jury instructions.

Moody was convicted of the October 2015 shooting death of Michael Guzik and of shooting with intent to kill another man.

The second man survived the shooting and identified Moody as the gunman.
