LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW)-- A man convicted of killing a La Crosse woman last year won't get a new trial.

Izelia Golatt was convicted last September for the March 2012 killing of Kristen Rodgers. Golatt wanted a new trial arguing that his first trial was not a public trial as guaranteed by the constitution. Golatt's attorney claimed the hours listed on the courthouse website differ from the hours of the actual trial.

Thursday, Judge Scott Horne ruled the courthouse was unlocked and open during the proceedings.

During the brief hearing, Judge Horne ruled Golatt does not get a new trial.
