SCOTTSBORO, Ala. (WHNT) -A Jackson County judge denied a request for a new trial for convicted murderer Michael Anthony Bunch.   Court documents do not give details of why Bunch was requesting a new trial or why Judge Jennifer Holt denied the request.

Late last year a jury convicted Bunch for the murder of Lisa Harper.   Bunch pleaded not guilty to the crime.

Family members reported Harper missing back on December 6, 2009.  Police found her body three days later in northern Marshall County.

Scottsboro Police say autopsy results show Harper had been strangled.
