Benjamin Schreiber, 66, was sentenced to life without parole in Iowa for bludgeoning a man to death in 1996.

He said his sentence ended when his heart stopped during a medical emergency four years ago, even though he was revived.

But judges said Schreiber's bid - while original - was "unpersuasive".

They said that it was "unlikely" to be dead, as he had signed his own legal documents in the case.
