Nebraska Supreme Court rejects post-conviction appeal for drunk driver

The Nebraska Supreme Court has rejected a post-conviction appeal of a man serving two 15-to-20-year prison sentences for causing a 2014 crash in southeastern Nebraska that killed two people.

The state’s high court on Friday found that Edward Koch, of Quincy, Illinois, filed his motion for post-conviction too late.

Investigators say Koch was drunk and speeding when he slammed into the back of another car, killing 23-year-old Matt Kirchhoff and 22-year-old Emily Widger.
