Former New Orleans radio and television personality Vince Marinello's murder conviction in the 2006 shooting death of his wife has been upheld by a state appeals court.

The 3rd Circuit Court of Appeal in Lake Charles released the decision Wednesday morning.

The 73-year-old Marinello was convicted in 2008 of second-degree murder for the shooting death of 45-year-old Mary Elizabeth Marinello in suburban New Orleans. He is serving a life sentence for the 2006 killing.

His trial was held in Lafayette Parish because of pretrial publicity in New Orleans.
