A former Scottsbluff man convicted in the 1988 murders of a Scottsbluff man and his girlfriend is once again making a bid to seek DNA testing of evidence in his case.

Jeff Boppre, 50, is serving a life sentence in the September 1988 killings of Richard Valdez, 25, and his pregnant girlfriend, Sharon Condon, 19. A jury convicted Boppre of the killings in March 1989 and two counts of using a weapon to commit murder and two counts of robbery. Boppre allegedly stole drug money before killing Valdez, who prosecutors said wrote a “dying declaration” identifying his killer. At the scene, investigators found the letters “JFF BOPPE” written in grease and the name “JEFF” written in blood near Valdez’s body.
