IN Court of Appeals upholds Boswell murder conviction


TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – The Indiana Court of Appeals upheld the murder and attempted murder convictions of Richard Boswell. In April 2015, a Vigo County jury convicted Boswell for the 1979 murder of Kathy Jo Baker, as well as the attempted murder of her son, Ryan.  He was two years old at the time.

Boswell appealed his case on five grounds.  The Court of Appeals affirmed his convictions at his trial, which was presided by Judge Michael Lewis. You can read the Court’s opinion here.

Boswell may appeal this decision to the Indiana Supreme Court.  He’s serving consecutive 55 and 45 year prison sentences.
