WABASH COUNTY, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - The murder conviction of Scott Pattison has been upheld by the Indiana Court of Appeals.

The Wabash County man was sentenced to 60-years in prison for killing his wife Lisa in their LaFountaine home in July of 2009.

The three judge panel ruled that the judge hearing the case didn't abuse discretion by admitting surveillance equipment and a surveillance video into evidence or allowing jurors to examine a weightlifting machine. The same machine, Pattison claims he found his wife on with a barbell across her throat.
