A court has upheld the triple-murder conviction of Matthew Slocum.

The Appellate Division, 3rd Department announced its decision on Thursday.


In 2017, Slocum was sentenced to 82 and a half years to life in state prison.

Jurors found back in 2011 Slocum intentionally caused the death of his mother, step-father, and step-brother by shooting them at a home in White Creek.

After committing the murders, he set the house on fire in an attempt to conceal evidence.

Slocum appealed, but the court unanimously rejected his argument.
