Another post-conviction petition denied in the Lillelid murders

As reported here, another post-conviction petition has been denied in Tennessee regarding the Lillelid murders.

The Lillelid family were European immigrants, returning home from a Jehovah's Witness conference, the defendants were a group of miscreants from Kentucky out looking for trouble, they met at a rest stop in Interstate 81 near Greeneville, the Lillelid parents and the daughter were killed and the son wounded, and the 6 Kentuckians all entered guilty pleas, but having avoided the death penalty they are one by one trying to get out from under their plea bargains.
