DOVER, N.H. (AP) - A Strafford County judge has rejected a southeast New Hampshire man’s request to overturn his conviction in the June 2014 murder of an 18-year-old Madbury man.

Attorneys representing 20-year-old Tristan Wolusky argued in Strafford Superior Court that their client should be granted a new trial because they claim two witnesses lied on the stand during his 2015 trial.

Wolusky was convicted of first-degree murder and numerous other charges stemming from the stabbing death of Aaron Wilkinson. The Rochester man was sentenced to a term of life in prison for the crime.

Judge Steven Houran rejected the motion last Wednesday on the basis that Woluski has an appeal pending before the New Hampshire Supreme Court.

Attorney Mark Sisti says he wants Wolusky retried in Strafford County before Judge Houran.
