John Lotter Files Appeal With U.S. Supreme Court
02/03/2012
 

 LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) _ A Nebraska death row inmate whose murder
case inspired the 1999 film ``Boys Don't Cry' has filed an appeal
to the U.S. Supreme Court.

     John Lotter and a co-defendant were convicted in the 1993
slaying of a 21-year-old woman who lived briefly as a man and two
witnesses to the killing. Lotter has maintained his innocence.

     In August, a three-judge panel of the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of
Appeals rejected Lotter's attempt to appeal his conviction. His
request for the full court to consider his appeal was denied.

     The Lincoln Journal Star reports that in
a letter filed Thursday, the 8th Circuit informed the U.S. District
Court in Nebraska about the Supreme Court filing.

     There's no word yet on whether the Supreme Court will hear the
case.
