The Supreme Court of Tennessee denied a new court case for Michael Jason Vance, according to records released on Monday. Vance was convicted of First Degree Murder after killing his wife Suzanne Vance.
In 2008, 35-year old Vance shot his 31-year old wife Suzanne at their home on Cozumel Court in the Blackman community. Vance was sentenced to life behind bars in the Circuit Courtroom of Judge David Bragg in 2010 for the shooting.
Vance appealed the case in 2013 suggesting a number of issues, one of which was, “The trial court erred by allowing into evidence a photo of the victim taken while the victim was living.” The courts denied the appeal in 2013 and the case eventually was sent to the Supreme Court of Tennessee where WGNS learned that it was denied on Monday.
