A man who admitted to killing a New Jersey state trooper has lost hid bid to have his 30-year sentence vacated.

Middleton Dunmore, of Atlantic City, claimed he had ineffective legal representation when he pleaded guilty in 2006.

Dunmore got 20 years for robbing a convenience store in Dennis Township and another 10 years for manslaughter in the death of 32-year-old trooper Beteram Zimmerman III.

Zimmerman died in February of 2004 when his cruiser struck a utility pole while responding to the robbery call.
