Court of Appeals Opinion

Date Published:

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Jeanie K. Vaudt, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., Mullins, J., and Danilson, S.J.  Opinion by Danilson, S.J.  (8 pages)

            Fred Moore appeals the district court order denying his request for postconviction relief from his conviction of first-degree murder.  OPINION HOLDS:  We determine the district court did not err by finding Moore did not show he was entitled to relief on the basis of newly-discovered evidence.  We also find no error in the district court’s conclusion Moore did not meet the standard necessary to prove his claim of actual innocence.  We affirm the district court’s decision denying Moore’s application for postconviction relief.
