(Liberty, IN)--The appeal of a Union County murderer has been denied. Bert McQueen shot and killed Brandon Wicker in Brownsville nearly two and a half years ago. McQueen was sentenced to 63 years in prison. McQueen appealed, claiming the sentence was inappropriate and that the murder was not particularly gruesome. The appeals court disagreed. At the end of the sentence, McQueen would be 108 years old.
