DES MOINES, Iowa (KTIV) -

There will be no new trial for a Havelock, Iowa man who shot and wounded his ex-wife, their two-year son and his ex-wife's boyfriend with a 12-guage shotgun as they sat in a minivan eight years ago.

The Iowa Court of Appeals has rejected an appeal by Richard Guidry.

Guidry was convicted in 2006 on two counts of attempted murder. The shooting happened on a county road near Pocahontas. Holly Newhouse-Guidry was shot in the arm, 2-year old Tristan Guidry was shot in the face and Scot Blasey was shot in the head.

They all survived, but Blasey was left with brain damage and unable to walk.

In his appeal, Richard Guidry argued he had ineffective counsel from his lawyer, but the Appeals Court rejected that argument in its ruling Wednesday morning.
