Jon Snow defense fail. Murderer must serve rest of life with no parole sentence. Spoiler alert

https://www.desmoinesregister.com/story/news/crime-and-courts/2019/11/07/iowan-murderer-says-life-sentence-fulfilled-his-short-lived-death/2517110001/

A man convicted of murder was rushed from the Iowa State Penitentiary to the hospital in 2015, where his heart was restarted five times.

Now he claims his life sentence was fulfilled in his short-lived death, and that he has over-stayed his prison time by four years.

Schreiber had signed a "do not resuscitate" agreement years earlier. But medical staff called his brother in Texas who told them, "if he is in pain, you may give him something to ease the pain, but otherwise you are to let him pass," according to court records.

The Iowa Court of Appeals on Wednesday affirmed the district court's decision, agreeing that Schreiber's sentence isn't up until a medical examiner declares he is deceased.
