Leon Means plea denied by Muskegon County judge

Judge rejects request to toss murder pleas

A Muskegon County judge has denied Leon Means', a convicted killer, request to withdraw his plea in two murders. Means is serving life in prison for four murders in Muskegon Heights.

He confessed to killing his wife and mother in law in 1989. Means also admitted to murdering more two women in 2014.

Last spring, Means' attorneys asked a judge to allow him to withdraw his no-contest pleas in the 2014 murder cases. He claimed he was denied medication for illnesses, was not competent to stand trial and did not have effective counsel. But the judge rejected those arguments, letting the convictions stand.
