Appeals Court Affirms Shooting Conviction, Sentence

The Indiana appeals court maintains there was sufficient evidence to convict Paul Moore and sentence him last May to 120 years in prison for shooting Gregory Johnson and Brandie Coleman in the head and burning their bodies.

The crimes happened in July 2003. Investigators alleged that Moore killed Johnson, who dressed as a woman, because he felt his sexuality was threatened by an intimate encounter the men had.

The appeals court ruled that some evidence was obtained illegally, but it did not influence the case.
