BROOKVILLE, JEFFERSON COUNTY – A man convicted of murdering two Brockway residents was denied a new trial by the Superior Court of Pennsylvania Wednesday.

Steven Rebert was convicted in the murder of Victoria and Wayne Shugar. In 2012 he was sentenced to four terms of life in prison.

Rebert’s lawyers tried to appeal his conviction based on four key factors.

The Superior Court affirmed the conviction and sentencing Wednesday. Rebert will now take his appeal to the State Supreme Court.
