Man Convicted In Green Bay Murder Denied Appeal

Posted Friday, June 15, 2012 --- 7:35 a.m.

WAUSAU, Wis. (AP) -- The state Supreme Court has declined to review an appeal by a man convicted in the grisly 1992 killing of a Green Bay paper mill worker.

The Green Bay Press-Gazette reports (http://gbpg.net/LpxkIW ) the court denied Rey Moore's petition for review, filed this winter after the appellate court denied Moore's appeal.

Moore was one of six men convicted of killing their co-worker Tom Monfils. His body was found in a pulp vat at the then-James River Corp. plant in Green Bay with a weight tied around his neck.

The 65-year-old Moore was seeking a new hearing for his 1995 conviction. The Wausau-based appellate court rejected his argument in January that a new jury needed to know that a jailhouse informant who had testified against him had since recanted his testimony.
