Eulitt was convicted of the New Year's Eve 2010 shooting death of Ronald Joseph Watts by a Washington County jury that recommended Eulitt be sentenced to life in prison.

Eulitt claimed he shot Watts after Watts pulled a gun -- but prosecutors say no second gun was found at the scene.

In affirming Eulitt's conviction and sentence, the five-judge appeals court rejected his claims that the 12-member jury did not receive proper legal instructions.

An after-hours call to his attorney, Jamie Pybas, was not immediately returned.
