Ohio murder review request denied

The Supreme Court of Ohio yesterday denied a defendant's request for the review of a decades-old murder case in Fulton County after the Sixth District Court of Appeals overturned the lower court's ruling to dismiss the case.

Walter E. Zimbeck II, 43, of Strawberry Plains, Tenn., is charged in Fulton County with aggravated murder and murder in the 1985 death of Lori Ann Hill, 14. He faces life in prison if convicted.

Although initially indicted in July, 2009, the charges were dismissed against Mr. Zimbeck by a Fulton County Common Pleas Court judge, who decided that it was unlikely a fair trial could be held. In May, the appellate court reversed that decision.
