Wed. 7:55 p.m.: Greene man loses murder appeal

WARREN – A man from Greene who killed his wife inside their family home has lost an appeal of his murder conviction.

Green claimed his attorney did not “perform an adversarial function” during plea talks and did not file a motion to suppress evidence in the case.

The court also found there were no errors in the case.
