A request for a new trial from Kenneth Eugene Andersen Jr., 35, has been denied.

Andersen, of rural Waubun, was convicted last month of first-degree murder in the April 13, 2007, shooting death of Chad Swedberg of rural Ogema.


His attorney, Simon George of Detroit Lakes, filed a motion June 18 for a new trial, on the basis of "interests of justice, abuse of discretion and misconduct by the state," according to court records.
