Koula Attorneys Will Appeal Double Murder Conviction
Eric Koula's defense team is preparing to appeal his murder conviction...
The defense attorneys are speaking publicly for the first time since Wednesday's verdict, when a jury found Koula guilty of killing his parents at their Barre Mills home in May of 2010. Attorney Keith Belzer says the motion to appeal will wait until after the sentencing in August. While the prosecution argued that Koula shot his parents to get money, the defense said Koula loved his mother and father, and was not in financial trouble. Belzer says Koula is 'devastated' by the verdict, and the attorneys still believe Koula is innocent.
