OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - The Nebraska Court of Appeals has affirmed a lower court’s refusal to release a man serving 65 to 100 years in prison for killing a teenager and her unborn baby.

Bobby Joe Moss was convicted in 2005 of second-degree murder in the 2003 shooting death of 17-year-old Michelle Harlan, who was eight months pregnant at the time of her death. He was also found guilty of a weapons count and of manslaughter for the death of Harlan’s fetus.

In his latest petition, Moss argued that his trial attorney was so ineffective that his constitutional rights were violated. On Tuesday, the appeals court rejected Moss’ argument.
