Missouri Court of Appeals holds up conviction in fatal crash


The Missouri Court of Appeals Southern District affirmed the conviction of a Jefferson City man in a fatal crash after he appealed the conviction on multiple grounds.

Damien Bryan was sentenced to 25 years after he was convicted of two counts of second-degree murder and one count of felony DWI.

Two people, Donald A. Edwards, 58, of Russellville, and Joan D. Hamilton, 75, of Lenexa, Kansas, were killed in the crash.

The Southern District denied Bryan's motion for post-conviction relief on claims he received ineffective assistance of counsel during his criminal case.
