The state’s highest court has upheld a Brockton man’s first-degree murder conviction.
Jean Claude Jules was convicted of killing his girlfriend in 2007 and sentenced to life.
The woman was found stabbed to death in her car, but Jules said she accidentally stabbed herself during a confrontation the couple was having.
The Supreme Judicial Court didn’t accept Jules’ argument that the conviction should be overturned because he didn’t make his statements to police voluntarily, and that his inability to speak English affected his statements, despite the presence of a translator during questioning.
