New Murder Trial For Hadel?

Posted: Updated:

WORCESTER CO., Md. - A convicted murderer in Worcester County could get another chance in court.

The state's highest appeals court ruled in favor of Justin Hadel, but not to throw out his conviction, he might get a new trial.

In 2011, Hadel was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for killing Christine Sheddy and burying her body behind a Snow Hill bed and breakfast.

Hadel claims his conviction should be thrown out because he wasn't allowed to switch attorneys four days before his trial. It's now in the hands of the Worcester County state's attorney, who must decide whether or not to appeal this latest ruling.

Beau Ogelsby tells us he plans to do just that within the next two week.

In the meantime, Hadel is expected to be transported from North Branch Correctional Institution back to a Worcester County jail.
