PRINCETON (WVVA) - A motion for a new trial for a convicted murderer has been denied.

Corey Samuel will now serve a life sentence for the murder of Dewayne Steptoe in 2009. He will be eligible for parole in 15 years.

He appeared in Judge William Sadler's courtroom Wednesday.

Steptoe, 27, was fatally shot outside 'Club Savoy' in Bluefield in September 2009.

Samuel was found guilty of first-degree murder in May 2012.
