Harlow Cuadra’s Murder Conviction Upheld

A Pennsylvania state appellate court has upheld the murder conviction and life sentence of now 29 year old, Harlow Cuadra.

Harlow Cuadra of Virginia Beach, Virgina, was seeking a new trial, alleging errors by the judge before and during his March 2009 trial in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania.

The Times-Leader of Wilkes-Barre reported that the Superior Court ruled Oct. 14 that the judge’s rulings were:

“well detailed and well-reasoned.”

Cuadra was convicted of first-degree murder and other offenses in the 2007 slaying of 44-year-old Bryan Kocis in his rural Dallas Township home. Investigators said Cuadra and his then 26-year-old boyfriend Joseph Kerekes killed Kocis and then set the house on fire. Kocis was the owner and producer of Cobra Video. Prosecution and police maintained the motive for the killing was centered around gay porn superstar Brent Corrigan. Cuadra and Kocis felt that by murdering Kocis, Corrigan would be able to make a video with them.

Kerekes pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in December 2008 and was sentenced to life in prison.

    Kerekes plead guilty. He cannot appeal. This Judge screwed up a lot on Cuadra’s side. We know Cuadra did the actual cutting and is not an emotionally stable or intellectually gifted young man. I thiink and believe he is where he needs to be…for life. Still, I say this is not over in the legal circus.

    Interesting. Why bring up this old Brent Corrigan story now? To draw attention away from the ongoing one?

    This one: http://bit.ly/9UOVtp . Apparently Corrigan’s new boyfriend is in jail, he’s been covering it up on his blog, and no one has been publishing anything about it.

    Ah wow…juicy. Poor Brent though. I know, I know…but he’s so darn mixed up, and has been since the beginning.
