A man sentenced to life in prison returns to the Erie County Courthouse.
In January of 2018, a jury found Keshawn McLaurin guilty of shooting Shakur Franklin.
The fatal shooting took place in July of 2015.
Monday, McLaurin sat in a hearing before Judge William Cunningham. McLaurin’s defense is arguing he should have a right to file an appeal to the Supreme Court.
Judge Cunningham ruled both sides to submit a written brief in the next 30 days.
