Appeals court upholds murder conviction of Zachary Reid

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Zachary Reid's conviction in the murder of his father has been upheld by a state appeals court.

The then-16-year-old Reid, killed his father Brett Reid, wrapped the body in a blanket and left it in a car in a school parking lot. He was sentenced to life in prison after being convicted of first-degree intentional homicide.

In his appeal, Reid argued ineffective assistance by his lawyer. But in Wednesday's ruling, the court rejected that appeal.

"We reject his arguments that his trial counsel was ineffective, that the trial court made erroneous evidentiary rulings and that he merits a new trial in the interest of justice because the real controversy was not tried.  We therefore affirm the judgment and order," the court wrote.
