Man convicted of murder, abuse of corpse won't get appeal rehearing

COLBERT COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - A man convicted of killing and dismembering the corpse of a Colbert County woman will not have his appeal reheard.

Ronald Weems was denied a rehearing of his appeal by the Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals.

Weems is serving a life sentence for killing Amanda Taylor in 2011.

Her body was dismembered and discarded in an effort to hide evidence.

Weems could come up for a parole hearing in 11 years.
