LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) — One of two brothers convicted in the home invasion murder of a Lancaster County widower will get no relief from a state appeals court.
Kyle Wunder, 26, argued that he asked his attorney to file an appeal after he was sentenced in 2013, but the attorney never acted. Superior Court found no such conversation took place and denied his claim.
His attorney, Jeffrey Conrad, testified at a prior hearing that Wunder never asked him to file an appeal for relief. He said when he asked Wunder if he wanted an appeal filed, Wunder said, “nah.”
Wunder, his brother Cody Wunder, and Stephen Harmer are all serving life sentences in the August 2012 shooting death of 62-year-old Douglas Herr during the theft of $211,000 from the victim’s Drumore Township home.
Herr received a large cash settlement after his wife’s death years prior, and Harmer learned that Herr kept the cash in his home.
