Columbia, South Carolina (WBTW) —The South Carolina Supreme Court will hear an appeal on Tuesday for a man convicted of the disappearance of Heather Elvis in Holly County more than eight years ago.
After being convicted in Holly County for obstruction of justice, kidnapping, and conspiracy, Sydney Moller, who has been sentenced to 30 years in prison, has sought a new trial.
Mueller was first convicted of obstructing justice in September 2017. In connection with the disappearance of Elvis. He was subsequently convicted of a 2019 retrial. For kidnapping.
The body of Elvis has not been found.
Mueller’s lawyer demanded a new trial in Georgetown County, alleging that Holly County’s jury pool was destroyed by social media. According to the case information, more than 100 people in the jury pool claimed to be unaware of the case.
Muller’s legal team also said prosecutors should remove allegations of obstruction of justice, alleging that Muller did something to the investigation or did not provide evidence that it interfered with the investigation.
They said that when Mueller lied to the authorities about calling Elvis from a pay phone, investigators began to conduct more detailed investigations than if Mueller told the truth. His appeal alleges that the chief investigator admitted that he would have investigated the case in the same way, even if Mueller was not the person of interest.
Mueller’s wife, Tammy, has also been sentenced to 30 years in prison after being convicted of kidnapping in October 2018.
