BISMARCK, N.D. (KFYR) - The North Dakota Supreme Court released an opinion Tuesday, affirming Jose Rivera-Rieffel’s murder conviction.

Rivera-Rieffel’s lawyers argued there was insufficient evidence to support a guilty verdict during trial.

However, the Supreme Court says there was substantial evidence supporting the guilty verdict.

Rivera-Rieffel is serving a life sentence without parole in the death of his three-month-old daughter.
