HAMBURG, AR - A judge in Ashley County has refused a McGehee trucker's request for a new trial in the death of Casey Crowder.
Kenneth Osburn had requested a new trial. His lawyers argued that some jurors were biased before the court proceedings ever began. Yesterday, a judge in Ashley County rejected Osburn's request for a new trial.
Osburn was sentenced in January to life in prison without parole for the 2006 killing of 17-year-old Casey Crowder. The Watson Chapel High School student disappeared after running out of gas along U.S. 65 near Dumas.
