    MIchelle Young's HUbby>Jason Young's bid for new trial in wife's death denied

    A Superior Court judge on Tuesday denied Jason Young's efforts to obtain a new trial in his wife's death more than a decade ago.

    Jason Young was sentenced five years ago to life in prison after he was found guilty of first-degree murder in the November 2006 death of Michelle Young, whose beaten body was found inside the couple's home as their young daughter wandered in and out of the room.

    Young appealed his conviction, and the North Carolina Court of Appeals ruled in 2014 that he should get a new trial.

    The court said the trial judge shouldn't have allowed testimony about a wrongful death judgment against Young in a civil lawsuit filed by Michelle Young's family and about a child custody dispute between Young and his in-laws

    Prosecutors appealed that ruling to the North Carolina Supreme Court, which said the Court of Appeals erred in ordering a new trial but said other issues from the trial needed further review. The appeals court then kicked the case back to Wake County Superior Court for another hearing

    Because of the strong circumstantial evidence establishing defendant’s guilt, the impeachment of his alibi, and the evidence of defendant’s conduct following the murder, the Court concludes that the errors of counsel were not sufficiently prejudicial to support the relief now sought by defendant," the judge ruled
