BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

A state judge ruled if a man convicted in the 2009 brutal stabbing of a local attorney deserved a new trial.  

Judge Bonnie Jackson ruled that Greg Harris, who is accused of stabbing his wife Chiquita Tate to death, will not be allowed a new hearing or trial. 

Harris was convicted of killing Tate back in 2011 and is now serving a 40-year sentence in prison for manslaughter. 

Tate was found dead in her downtown Baton Rouge office.
