Convicted murderer loses appeal in state supreme court

LITTLE ROCK, AR (KAIT) -

A former Warm Springs man lost his appeal in Arkansas Supreme Court for his murder conviction in 1998.

According to Prosecuting Attorney Henry Boyce, Billy Dale Green, 59, failed to win his appeal. The announcement was made Tuesday.

Green is serving life in prison without parole for the murders of Carl and Lisa Elliott, and their 2 children, Felicia and Gregory. The murders took place in 1998 in Dalton, Arkansas.

Green “sought relief from the Court in a Rule 37 Motion claiming ineffective assistance of counsel during his May 2012 trial”, the news release stated.

"The Green case has been an odyssey of legal battles, twists and turns for almost 12 years,” Boyce said. “We began this prosecution 6 months after I took office. Green and his son, Chad, had been on the loose for five years prior to that. I am proud that we were able to take them off the street back then, and I am also glad to say they will now both spend the rest of their lives in prison.”
