A Casper man who admitted to committing murder will not be getting out of prison.

A judge has denied a stay of sentence motion for 21-year old Samuel Renner, who was hoping to have his 60-years to life in prison sentence halted, pending an appeal of his case to the Wyoming Supreme Court.

Renner pleaded guilty to charges of second degree murder, attempted second murder and nine other charges, stemming from a fatal shooting that happened at Taylor’s Sports Bar in Evansville, in July of 2013.

His attorney’s argued that if the stay motion was granted, he would be staying with his family in Evansville.

However, the Natrona County District Attorney’s Office countered, that Renner was on probation on an unrelated matter, at the time the fatal shooting occurred, plus if Renner manages to win his appeal, he still has to serve at least 30 years in prison, on other charges.

Judge Thomas Sullins ruled that Renner may try to flee the area, and that he might be a danger to the safety of others, and thus denied the stay motion.

Renner is having his murder case appealed to the Wyoming Supreme Court, because it is normal court procedure.
