Superior Court affirms Groves’ murder conviction


LOCK HAVEN – A state Superior Court panel has affirmed the third-degree murder conviction and sentence in a 1991 Clinton County cold case in which the body never has been found.

There was overwhelmingly circumstantial evidence for a jury to find Loyd W. Groves killed Katherine Dolan Heckel, 40, on July 15, 1991, the opinion written by president Judge Jack A. Panella states.
