Murder Conviction Upheld for 2008 Slaying

Mass. SJC affirmed jury finding Robert Vacher guilty of first-degree murder of Jordan Mendes in Barnstable

The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court upheld the first-degree murder conviction of a man found guilty of shooting and stabbing another man to death on Cape Cod in 2008.

Robert Vacher was convicted in 2011 of killing Jordan Mendes in the Hyannis section of Barnstable.

He claimed that his police statement and evidence found in his car should be suppressed. The high court rejected that claim.

Vacher was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
