A man convicted of murder is back in Marion County for a post-conviction hearing. Steven Dean McGinnis is currently serving a life sentence after being found guilty in the 2008 murder of Robert Ohl. McGinnis was sentenced in 2009, and lost an appeal to overturn the conviction in 2011. The post-conviction hearing allows the defendant raise new claims and is generally the last process available to overturn a previous conviction.

McGinnis is pictured above on the left. Marion County Jailer Scott Jerkins in in the middle, and former Marion County Sheriff Ron Goemaat is on the right.
