CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The man convicted in the death of a young woman will not be getting a new trial.
Ethan Mack argued that his lawyer didn't do a good enough job defending him. He was convicted of voluntary manslaughter in the 2009 death of 28-year-old Kate Waring.
A judge has denied Mack's request for a new trial.
Prosecutors say Mack and his wife tortured waring with a stun gun and drowned her in a tub at a James Island apartment. Her body was found four months later on Wadmalaw island.
Mack is currently serving a 25 year sentence.
