A recent opinion released by the 1st District Court of Appeals denied relief once again to Jeffrey Wogenstahl who was convicted and sentenced to death for the 1991 abduction and brutal murder of 10-year-old Amber Garrett.

Wogenstahl was convicted in 1993 upon jury verdicts finding him guilty of aggravated burglary, kidnapping and aggravated murder in the Hamilton County Court of Common Pleas. Since then, he has unsuccessfully challenged his convictions in appeals to the 1st District, the Ohio Supreme Court and several federal courts including the U.S. Supreme Court.
