A murder conviction has been upheld in a case against a Rusk County man convicted of beating a man to death with a hammer. Daniel Latham, 23, murdered a 62-year-old Price area man in 2004. The victim was an organist at a Rusk County church.
Latham was seeking a new trial based on jury misconduct, but a court of appeals upheld his conviction.
Latham is currently serving a 55-year prison sentence.
