Idaho Court of Appeals upholds Meridian man's murder conviction

Rob Hall, shown during his jury trial for killing Emmett Corrigan, appealed his 2012 conviction but the appeals court upheld the district court ruling last week.
Rob Hall, shown during his jury trial for killing Emmett Corrigan, appealed his 2012 conviction but the appeals court upheld the district court ruling last week.

Rob Hall, found guilty of killing his wife's lover in a Meridian parking lot in 2011, challenged that conviction, but the appeals court did not validate his arguments.

Prosecutors said Hall waited for Kandi Hall and Emmett Corrigan outside a Walgreens store in March 2011, shot Corrigan twice then tried to shoot himself in the head but missed. In October 2012, he was convicted of second-degree murder and sentenced to 30 years in prison, with eligibility for parole after 17.5 years.

In his appeal, Hall argues that the 4th District judge erred in failing to properly instruct the jury on his justifiable homicide defense, by excluding Corrigan's Facebook statements and by admitting testimony about the curriculum of Hall's concealed weapon class. The appeals court did not find error in those actions and unanimously upheld Hall's conviction Oct. 21.
