A Couple Convicted For Kidnapping Attempted To Overturn Their Rulings
The S.C. Court of Appeals established that there was enough evidence to prove their guilt.
The S.C. Court of Appeals has up-held the convictions and sentences for Sidney and Tammy Moorer.
The couple received 30-year prison sentences for their role in the 2013 disappearance of Heather Elvis.
Elvis was last seen on December 18th in 2013 after leaving home to go on a date. Her car was found two days later abandoned at Peachtree Landing in Socastee.
An investigation connected the Moorers and they were both charged with murder and kidnapping. The murder counts were later dismissed because Elvis’ body has never been found.
On Wednesday, the Court of Appeals affirmed the trial court rulings in both cases after they each attempted to overturn them.
Both Sidney and Tammy argued against their rulings for separate reasons, but the S.C. Court of Appeals established that there was enough evidence to prove their guilt.
The Moorers still have the option to request the S.C. Supreme Court intervene in their cases.
