    Claiming he’s a victim of “blatant, testimonial hearsay,” a once-prominent Wellesley Hills allergist serving life for the Halloween slaughter of his wife 12 years ago has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to consider his bid for a new trial.

    Supreme Court justices will review ex-doc Dirk Greineder’s 30-page petition at a conference scheduled for April 1.

    Greineder is hoping to pique the Supreme Court’s interest in Sixth Amendment cases by arguing that a lab- oratory director’s testimony at his trial about DNA evidence — when she neither conducted nor reviewed the actual testing — amounts to “blatant, testimonial hearsay” that violated the ex-doc’s constitutional right to confront witnesses against him.

    Any updates on Dirk Greineder? I guess they didn't grant him a new trial. I wonder if his children are all still standing by his side?

    SJC refuses to grant new trial to Dirk Greineder, convicted of murdering wife in Wellesley

    <<snipped>>

    In a 42-page ruling, the Supreme Judicial Court rejected Greineder&#8217;s claim that his Norfolk Superior Court trial was constitutionally flawed because a DNA expert summarized results of forensic tests performed by another person.


    <<snipped>>

    The &#8220;decision re-affirms that Mabel Greineder was the victim of a brutal domestic violence murder at the hands of her husband Dirk, the fairness of his trial and that the verdict was just.&#8217;&#8217; Morrissey said, crediting prosecutors and investigative work by Wellesley and State Police for his arrest and conviction.
