The petitioner, Ronny Elliot, appeals from a judgment of a single justice of this court denying his petition pursuant to G. L. c. 211, § 3.  We affirm.

In 1995, Elliot was indicted on charges of murder in the first degree, armed assault with intent to murder, and possession of a firearm without a license.  He was seventeen years old at the time.  He was convicted by a Superior Court jury, in 1997, of the lesser offense of murder in the second degree as well as of the other offenses.  This court affirmed the convictions.  See Commonwealth v. Elliot, 430 Mass. 498 (1999).  Elliot subsequently filed a motion for a new trial in 2000, and an amended motion for a new trial in 2003.  After a hearing, the amended motion was denied, in 2008.[1]  The Appeals Court affirmed the order denying the motion for a new trial, and this court denied Elliot’s application for further appellate review.  See Commonwealth v. Elliot, 80 Mass. App. Ct. 1104 (memorandum and order pursuant to rule 1:28), .C., 460 Mass. 1115 (2011). read more
