ARMOUR -- A convicted murderer's request for a new trial has been denied. Judge Bruce Anderson filed his decision Monday regarding Lewis Ashker's petition. Ashker, who was convicted in 1986 for the murder of Delmont resident Jerry Plihal, argued last week DNA testing on hairs from the crime scene showed he was not there. Several hairs in evidence were tested at a laboratory in Arizona, but all tests were either inconclusive or showed certain hairs were Plihal's.
