Bodhi Tree set to be sentenced Friday

EUREKA- A Humboldt County Superior Court Judge has denied a motion for a new trial against convicted double murder suspect Bodhi Tree.

Tree's defense filed the motion, stating there was new evidence in the case that could impact the verdict in a new case. The judge ruled Thursday that the findings were not enough to issue a new trial.

Tree was convicted of two counts of murder and one attempted murder in August by a jury. He is set to be sentenced Friday afternoon.
