Indiana Supreme Court justices on Monday agreed to hear a northern Indiana man's appeal of his conviction in his ex-girlfriend's fatal shooting.
The Indiana Court of Appeals upheld McCowan's conviction and sentence in April, but the state's high court announced it would hear his appeal.
McCowan's appeal will likely focus on the admissibility of cellphone records purportedly showing McCowan at sites near where Bach's car and body were found, the Times of New Munster reported.
He's also expected to challenge a Porter County judge's alleged bias in the case and refusal to provide jurors with McCowan's preferred instruction on a criminal defendant's presumption of innocence.
Bach's body was found in a wooded area near McCowan's home in Union Township three days after the 19-year-old disappeared.
