The conviction of Michael Potts, in the deadly shooting of Artheddius Peeler nine years to the day Thursday, was upheld by a state appeals court.

Potts is currently serving a 25 year prison sentence for the murder that happened at a 2008 birthday party in Grand Chute.

He was convicted by a jury for intentional homicide, but that conviction was overturned on appeal before it was upheld on Wednesday.

The state appeals court says Potts failed to show clear and convincing evidence that his conviction should be overturned.
