NH Supreme Court rejects appeal of murder conviction in 2012 robbery, fatal stabbing

The Associated Press

CONCORD — The New Hampshire Supreme Court has upheld the second-degree murder conviction of a Farmington man charged in a robbery and fatal stabbing in 2012.

Christopher Gay is serving 40 years to life in prison for the death of Ryan Stewart. In his appeal, he argued that talking to police outside his home later that morning amounted to an unconstitutional search and seizure, and he said he should have been allowed to bring in evidence that someone else was responsible for the killing.

The court ruled this week that the trial court handled both issues appropriately.

Another man, Cory Bennett, is serving 30 years to life in prison for his role in the killing.
