TOPEKA, Kan. (AP)-- The Kansas Supreme Court has upheld the murder conviction of a man who died while serving time for the 2009 death of a woman.

The court on Friday ruled on the conviction of Roger Hollister, who died in 2013 at the El Dorado Correctional Facility where he was serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole. He was 61.

Hollister was convicted in the death of 58-year-old Patricia Kimmi of rural Horton. She disappeared in November 2009 and her remains were found in May 2010.

The Supreme Court ruled that although the death of a criminal defendant does not end the appeals process, it found evidence in the case was convincing enough to find Hollister guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
