Convicted murderer wants new trial


WELCH (WVVA) - A convicted murderer was back in court Thursday in McDowell County.

Amos Hicks was convicted in 2009 for the first-degree murder of Jamie Webb. Now Hicks is requesting a new trial.

Hicks' attorney says there were errors made in his previous trial, which made it unfair.

The prosecuting attorney says Hicks was given a fair trial and the request for a new trial is invalid.

An additional attorney has been appointed to Hicks. The trial is scheduled for late June. 

WVVA's Kristen Conner spoke exclusively with Hicks' sister, watch WVVA News tonight at 5 and 6 to see what she had to say.
