Behrman killer denied new trial

A convicted killer has been denied a new trial in the 2000 murder of Indiana University student Jill Behrman. A Morgan County judge denied John Myers’ appeal Monday. Myers said he didn’t get a fair trial in 2006 because of ineffective counsel and prosecutorial misconduct. He’s serving a 65-year prison sentence for shooting Behrman to death after abducting the 19-year-old student while she was on a bike ride.
