Indiana's Supreme Court upholds the murder conviction of Clint Loehrlein.
Loehrlein was sentenced to 150 years or life in prison for killing his wife and attacking his adult twin daughters in Vanderburgh County in 2019. That murder conviction was overturned in Feburary of 2020 after a juror provided false information on questionaire prior to trial.
Defense lawyers argued her answer could prove bias and a possible agenda. In the opinion handed down by Indiana's Supreme Court agreed the juror did commit gross misconduct but it’s not likely Loehrlein was harmed. Therefore his murder conviction stands.
44News reached out to the Vandeburgh County Prosecutors for comment.
Nick Herman released this statement: “Our office is extremely grateful for the great time and attention the Supreme Court took in reviewing all the facts in the case against Mr. Loehrlein,” the statement read. “We are even more grateful that the victims who survived this horrendous crime can continue to move forward in their lives. Thankfully they do not have to step into a courtroom ever again.”
