Judge denies Marvin Gabrion's latest appeal

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — One of the last chances for Michigan's only inmate on death row to avoid execution has been struck down.

In a 216-page response filed last week, a federal judge in West Michigan denied Marvin Gabrion's latest appeal.

In that appeal, Gabrion claimed some of what the jury heard was false or misleading, that his attorneys were ineffective and that the government didn't disclose some evidence that could have helped his case. He also claimed the death penalty was unconstitutionally applied in his case, in part because he is white and in part because he says he is mentally ill.
