Dale Larkin in court

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. -

A man convicted of killing his wife for insurance money in Johnson City has lost a bid for a new trial.

Criminal Court Judge Robert Cupp ruled Friday that it wasn't his place to overturn Dale Larkin's verdict. A jury convicted Larkin in February of killing his wife Terry in a bathtub in 2003.

Investigators ruled the case a murder in 2009 after a second autopsy. Larkin's attorney says he will appeal.
