Helena Shooting Appeal Rejected

Posted: Updated:

HELENA, Mont. (AP) - The Montana Supreme Court has rejected the appeal of a Helena man sentenced to 100 years in prison for shooting his wife and the couple's nanny.

The five-judge panel on Tuesday unanimously rejected every claim made by 35-year-old Jeremy Steven MacGregor. 

MacGregor was convicted of two counts of attempted deliberate homicide for shooting Jennifer MacGregor in the chest and Betsy Mart several times in April 2010. He admitted to the shooting but said he was intoxicated after inadvertently eating marijuana-laced cookies. 

MacGregor in his appeal contended juror misconduct and ineffective representation by his court-appointed standby counsel.

The court rejected those claims, affirming the rulings of District Judge Jeffrey Sherlock.
