State Supreme Court to decide on taking up Walter Ellis appeal soon

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Convicted mass murderer Walter Ellis is arguing he only pleaded no contest to seven homicide charges because he faced what he calls unfair circumstances.

Ellis is appealing his convictions on first-degree intentional homicide and first-degree murder charges in the deaths of seven women.

Ellis had asked the court for a change of venue and he also wanted the cases to be tried separately. A court of appeals denied both of those arguments.

The next step is the Wisconsin Supreme Court. It is expected to decide in the next few weeks whether it will take the case.
