Posted April 6, 2004 3:13 a.m. EDT

— A Wayne County man accused in the Nightstalker cases lost a battle Tuesday in the court of appeals.

Linwood Forte lost his appeal for an attempted jail break.

Forte and another inmate were convicted of trying to run while awaiting trials on murder.

Forte was convicted in 2003 after DNA evidence linked him to a series of violent crimes in Wayne County in the early 1990s.
