Conviction stands for man who robbed jewelry store, killed clerk

News

The conviction of a man who robbed a jewelry store and shot and killed the clerk will stand. 

Manuel Gardner walked into the National Jewelry Buyers store on Coors near Cottonwood in July 2013, stole $1,700, then shot and killed Richard Glass. 

Gardner was convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to life in prison. 

Gardner appealed claiming among other things, a witness perjured herself. 

The Supreme Court ruled that testimony did not affect the outcome of the trial, so his life sentence stands.
