A Scotts Bluff County judge denies an appeal for a man who killed a 15-year old mail carrier back in 2003.
 
Judge Randall Lippstreu ruled in a memorandum Tuesday that Jeffrey Hessler is not entitled to an evidentiary hearing on any issue raised in his second motion for post-conviction relief.

Hessler was convicted in 2004 of kidnapping, raping and killing Heather Guerrero.

The State Supreme Court upheld his conviction and death sentence in November 2007.

Hessler filed the motion in August 2012, claiming he was mentally ill and incompetent to stand trial.

Lippstreu says his claims were addressed and denied during his first motion for post-conviction relief.
