The attorney for convicted murderer Vernon Huser is seeking a third trial for his client.
Huser was accused of hiring hitman Louis Woolheater to kill Lance Morningstar in 2004.
Huser was convicted of first degree murder in 2010 but was granted a new trial on appeal. But that jury also returned a first degree murder verdict last month.
He is scheduled to be sentenced to a mandatory life sentence on January 24th.
Monday, Huser’s attorney filed a motion to dismiss that conviction and grant a new trial.
A judge hasn’t set a date to hear that motion.
