(WLNS) – The state Supreme Court has rejected an appeal from a man serving a life sentence in a Livingston County double murder.

In 2013 69-year-old Jerome Kowalski was convicted on two counts of first-degree premeditated murder for the shooting deaths of Richard and Brenda Kowalski, that’s according to our media partners at WWMT-FM.

Prosecutors said the Warren man was disgruntled about his relationship with his brother and the two had disagreed about how to handle the estate of their mother.

The Michigan appeals court affirmed Kowalski’s conviction and sentence last December.

Kowalski then appealed to the Michigan Supreme Court, which denied the request earlier this week.
