LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) – A Lancaster man serving a 100-year prison sentence for the shooting death of his ex-girlfriend and four others has had his request for relief denied by a Superior Court judge.
Mark Q. Galloway, 48, was sentenced to 41 ½ to 100 years for the 2007 fatal shooting of his ex-girlfriend, 35, her mother, daughter, a 2-year-old grandson, and a family friend.
In 2008, Galloway pleaded guilty to four counts of attempted homicide and other related offenses.
In Galloway’s recent request for relief, he argued that witnesses lied and there were improprieties on behalf of police and prosecutors.
According to Assistant District Attorney Travis S. Anderson, the challenge needed to be made within a year of his conviction becoming final.
The Pennsylvania Superior Court agreed in a 5-page opinion filed Monday.
