Schneider loses appeal on murder convictionOctober 20, 2020
By CANDY NEAL
A man’s appeal of his murder conviction was denied by the Court of Appeals of Indiana on Tuesday.
In June 2019, Kyle D. Schneider, 28, of Huntingburg was sentenced to 85 years in prison for the murder of 23-year-old Chloie E. Lubbehusen. That included 65 years for murder and an additional 20 years for being found to be a habitual offender.
Prior to receiving that sentence, Schneider had pleaded guilty to possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon, and was sentenced to six years in the Indiana Department of Correction in that case, with the term to be consecutive to the murder sentence. Dubois Circuit Judge Nathan Verkamp issued the sentence and ordered Schneider to pay restitution in the sum of $15,210.20 to cover the cost of Lubbehusen’s funeral, burial expenses and grave marker.
Schneider’s appeal argued that the trial court abused its discretion in admitting and excluding evidence and in instructing the jury.
Lubbehusen was found Jan. 11, 2019 stabbed and bleeding on the porch of a residence in the St. Anthony area. She later succumbed to her wounds at Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center. Schneider was found hiding in a garage at the scene on the morning of the incident.
The Dubois County Prosecutor’s Office is planning to issue a press release on the denial of the appeal.
