A man who killed his ex-girlfriend, by setting her on fire, has more work to do if he wants to convince a judge that his lawyer didn't do his job.
A jury found Ronnie Rorie guilty of First Degree Murder in the death of Michelle Arnold in 2008.
In a motion filed earlier this year Rorie's lawyer claimed that other lawyers, at the time of his trial, didn't present all the evidence he had.
Rorie's lawyer and members from the Prosecutor's Office in Monongalia County were back in court on Tuesday to argue that point, but the judge didn't buy it.

This is what stinking lawyers do; grasp at straws. He's guilty; he's been found and proven guilty. He SHOULD get the death penalty, but liberals in this state show sympathy for these types of non-human beings!
