A man convicted in the killing of a Jackson State University student has filed an appeal citing a violation of his rights, 16 WAPT reports.
Stanley Cole, 28, was convicting of killing 20-year-old Latasha Norman in February 2010. He maintains her death was an accident.
The student died after what Cole’s lawyer Matt Eichelberger called a “one-punch homicide,” the Clarion Ledger reports.
Cole is facing a life sentence for the crime.
“A reasonable jury could have found him guilty of manslaughter,” Eichelberger told a three-judge panel of Court of Appeals.
The Mississippi Court of Appeals will make a decision in the case within 200 days.
