Adrian Telegram: John Skelton appeal denied

(TOLEDO NEWS NOW) - The Michigan Court of Appeals will not allow John Skelton to challenge his prison sentence for the disappearance of his three sons, the Adrian Daily Telegram reports.

Last year, Skelton pleaded guilty to unlawful imprisonment after his three children disappeared during a visit to his home.

The court says Skelton's appeal was denied for "lack of merit."

The three children have not been found.
