ST. LOUIS - A man who claimed he was framed by Megan Boken's killer will stay in jail.

On Thursday a judge ruled an armed robbery conviction for Cornell McKay will stand. He was convicted of robbing a woman for her cell phone at North Boyle and Lindell in August 2012.

McKay says he's innocent.

Former Saint Louis University volleyball player Megan Boken was killed nearby in the Central West End 10 days later. Keith Esters pleaded guilty in that case.

McKay's attorney says Esters is also the guy who did the robbery at North Boyle and Lindell.
