Kirkpatrick Appeals to Supreme CourtAlyssa Marino | 9/4/2012
Kirkpatrick, who is currently serving life in a penitentiary in another state, is appealing some issues of his trial and hoping to get relief of his sentence. His defense council argued his issues for him today which are related to the instructions the jury was given. Kirkpatrick believes the jury was mislead on his charges and his "extreme emotional disturbance" at the time of the trial since prior to appearing in court, his daughter died of medical complications.
Both Kirkpatrick`s defense team and the Fargo State`s Attorney were in court discussing the case.
Guttoso was found bludgeoned to death in his Fargo home. His car and other items belonging to him were stolen.
Now both sides will wait for the Supreme Court to make a decision regarding the argument.
