WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A Sedgwick County judge says he won’t order a new capital murder trial for a Wichita man convicted of killing a 14-year-old girl.

Elgin “Ray Ray” Robinson is serving a life sentence for the 2006 strangulation of 14-year-old Chelsea Brooks.

The Wichita Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1g0EOTf ) that District Judge Patrick Walters this week denied Robinson’s motion for a new trial. Robinson argued that his trial lawyers failed to provide him with an adequate defense. Prosecutors said the claim was groundless.

The Kansas Supreme Court upheld Robinson’s convictions for capital murder and other charges in 2012.

Brooks disappeared on June 9, 2006. Her body was found less than a week later in a Butler County field
