The Indiana Supreme Court has affirmed the ruling of the Court of Appeals on a case it granted transfer to Friday.

Justices granted transfer late last week in Floyd Tewell v. State of Indiana, No. 48S02-0701-PC-118, in which the court was asked to rule on whether Tewell's request challenging his prison detainment should have been treated as post-conviction relief or a writ of habeas corpus.

In an order posted online today and dated Jan. 11, the Supreme Court adopted the opinion of the Court of Appeals, which held the trial court properly treated Tewell's petition as a post-conviction relief petition and the court had properly ruled the Indiana Parole Board had not previously discharged Tewell from his life sentence.
