SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - A federal appeals court panel has rejected a bid for a new trial by convicted murderer Wayne Kubsch.

Kubsch was sentenced to death for the September 1998 murders of his wife, her ex-husband, and her 10-year-old son.

Ten-year-old Aaron Milewski, 31-year-old Beth Kubsch and 35-year-old Rick Milewski were found dead in Wayne Kubsch’s basement.

Prosecutors say Kubsch was heavily in debt and killed his wife to collect on a $575,000 life insurance policy he’d taken out on her.

His first conviction was overturned before a second jury also convicted him and recommended the death penalty.

Kubsch appealed his sentence, calling it unconstitutional because evidence was excluded.
