Looks like convicted comic book store killer Michael George is running out of legal options:
A Macomb County Circuit Court judge has denied a motion for acquittal and a new trial in the case of a former Clinton Township comic book store owner convicted of killing his wife in 1990.
In a written ruling issued today, Judge Mary Chrzanowski dismissed arguments from defense attorney Carl Marlinga that there was insufficient evidence to convict his client, Michael George, who is serving a life sentence without parole.
Although the article doesn’t mention whether there can be further appeals, you’d have to think that George is left with few options any more.
George was convicted of killing his wife Barbara over 20 years ago in the back room of the comics shop they co-owned.
