INDIANAPOLIS — Appellate justices have ruled that an Elkhart man did not receive a fair trial when he was convicted of murder in 2005.

The Indiana Court of Appeals on Thursday upheld the order given one year ago that vacated the conviction of 45-year-old Andrew Royer. Kosciusko County Judge Joe Sutton, who was appointed in Royer’s petition for post-conviction relief, also ordered that he be given a new trial.
