  • Court: Man convicted in fatal N.M. crash won’t get new trial

    By Felicia Fonseca
    Albuquerque, New Mexico (AP)

    The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver on May 6 rejected an appeal by Gordon House of Thoreau, who contended he was being held in prison in violation of his constitutional rights.
