Man convicted of 1989 Lakeville murders files brief in hopes of new trial
ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. (WNDU) - Progress is being made on Jeff Pelley’s petition for post-conviction relief.
Pelley was convicted of killing his father, stepmother and two stepsisters in Lakeville in 1989, so he could attend prom-related activities.
In March, a three-day hearing was held to give Pelley’s legal team a chance to present new evidence in the case. Last week, the team submitted its proposed findings of fact and conclusions of law.
The state now has 90 days to submit a proposed order of its own.
