An appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court by a Colorado man convicted of shoving his wife off of a cliff to her death in Rocky Mountain National Park has been denied.

Harold Henthorn, convicted in 2015 in the murder of his wife, Toni Bertolet Henthorn, filed a petition for a “writ of certiorari” with the U.S. Supreme Court seeking a re-examination of a 10th Circuit Court of Appeals decision affirming his conviction.

Henthorn, through his attorneys, had argued before the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that U.S. District Judge R. Brooke Jackson should not have allowed evidence in the death of his first wife, Sandra “Lynn” Henthorn to be introduced in the case of his second wife’s death.
