(INDIANAPOLIS) - The Indiana Court of Appeals has rejected post-conviction relief for a man convicted of killing an Indiana University student who vanished during a 2000 bike ride.

The court on Thursday affirmed a lower court's decision denying John Myers II's petition for the civil procedure that allows people to challenge their criminal conviction or sentence after exhausting the standard appeals process.

Myers is serving a 65-year sentence for his 2006 murder conviction in the killing 19-year-old Jill Behrman. The IU freshman disappeared during a May 2000 bike ride.

Her skeletal remains were discovered nearly three years later in a remote Morgan County field about 15 miles from Bloomington. Prosecutors said Behrman had been fatally shot in the head.

The Court of Appeals had previously upheld Myers' conviction in Behrman's slaying.
