The man responsible for the 1997 school shooting in Paducah can not withdraw his guilty plea.

The Court of Appeals ruled against Michael Carneal.

He pleaded guilty to killing three students and wounding others at Heath High School, but he argued he was mentally incompetent to enter that plea.

The judge said today he could have acted sooner to seek a new trial, so they turned down his request to withdraw the plea.
