The Bangor Daily News is reporting that the U.S. Supreme Court  Monday refused to review the  case of convicted murderer, Thayne Ormsby. Ormsby was sentenced in 2012 to three life terms in prison for killing three people in Amity in June 2010.

The BDN reports that Ormsby requested a review of an Oct. 2013 decision by the Maine Supreme Judicial Court in which the justices upheld his conviction and sentences for the murders of 10-year-old Jesse Ryan, his father Jeffrey Ryan, and family friend Jason Dehahn.

Assistant Maine Attorney General Donald Macomber  said Tuesday that he was not surprised that the court opted not to review the case.

Ormsby entered pleas of not guilty and not guilty by reason of insanity to the charges.  He was first found guilty of the murders and then criminally responsible for his crimes.
