(Neb)-Post-Conviction Appeal Denied In Sidney Murder Case

By: John Axtell Posted at: 12/04/2017 12:13 AM
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The Nebraska Supreme Court has rejected the post-conviction appeal of a man serving a life sentence for the 2012 drug-related killing of another man in Sidney.

     Jason Custer, formerly of Chico, California, filed for post-conviction relief after losing his direct appeal of convictions for 1st-degree murder and other counts.

       In the filing, Custer claimed his defense attorney was so ineffective that it violated his right to a fair trial including failing " to object at critical junctures throughout the entirety of the trial," but the high court said there was no merit to any of his claims.

     Authorities say Custer shot 35-year-old Adam McCormick at Sidney home after they argued over $160 in drug money.
