Meridian man convicted in killing wants new trial
A Meridian man convicted of second-degree murder has asked for a new trial.
The Idaho Statesman reports that attorneys for Rob Hall filed the motion Thursday in 4th District Court, contending the jury's guilty verdict isn't supported by the evidence.
Hall was convicted Oct. 25 in the March 2011 shooting death of his wife's lover in a drugstore parking lot. He's scheduled to be sentenced Dec. 13.
Hall's attorneys say the handgun fell out of Hall's sweat shirt pocket during a struggle with Emmett Corrigan. The attorneys say Hall has no memory of firing a gun, but had he fired it would have been in self-defense.
A hearing on the new motion is set for Nov. 29. The motion doesn't include any new evidence.
