BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The state Supreme Court has rejected the appeal of a man who admitted killing a Devils Lake store clerk during a 1995 robbery.

Marlon Comes claimed he had been misinformed about how much time he would have to serve before being eligible for parole.

Comes was sentenced to life in prison in 1996. He was one of three teen-agers charged in the December 1995 killing of Donald Jerome, who was a clerk at a Devils Lake convenience store.

Comes was 15 at the time of the shooting. He had pleaded guilty to charges of murder and robbery.

Ramsey County State’s Attorney Lonnie Olson tells KZZY radio that Comes is not eligible to be considered eligible for parole until 2041.
