Request for new trial in Ken Bluew case rejected

Posted: Updated:
BUENA VISTA TOWNSHIP, MI (WNEM) -

Former Buena Vista police officer Ken Bluew will not be getting a new trial, after a judge rejected his request.

According to the Saginaw News, Judge Darnell Jackson says Bluew would have been convicted "anywhere on the planet."

Ken Bluew's attorney requested a new trial, saying the jury selection was "fundamentally flawed."

The case can now move to the State Court of Appeals.

In October, a jury convicted Bluew in the death of Jenny Webb and her unborn child Bluew fathered. Prosecutors said Bluew killed Jenny Webb near a Buena Vista Township gun range.

Prosecutors said Bluew allegedly didn't want to pay child support, didn't want his wife to know about the situation and didn't want a baby.

He is serving life behind bars without possibility of parole.
