State asking Supreme Court to review triple murder conviction reversal

The Office of the Indiana Attorney General is asking the Supreme Court to review the case of Wayne Kubsch, whose three murder convictions were overturned by the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals.

Kubsch was convicted of the 1998 murders of his wife Beth Kubsch, 11-year old Aaron Milewski and Beth's ex-husband Rick Milewski.

The case was overturned when the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals re-heard the case en banc.

They ordered the state to either retry Kubsch or release him.

The St. Joseph County Prosecutor's Office is asking for the Supreme Court to hear the case because the decision of the Seventh Circuit overturning the conviction was based on a Supreme Court case.

The Office of the Attorney General also filed a Motion to Extend Stay of the mandate that Kubsch be retried or released.

The AG wants the stay granted until the Supreme Court makes a decision on whether or not to hear the case.
