Convicted killer Phillip Cheatham says his lawyer did a poor job representing him, and he should get a new trial. His attorney agrees -- on both counts.
Dennis Hawver says he must have done a poor job communicating to the jury why his client did not commit two murders, in addition to another attempted murder charge.
He says he will discuss the issue with Cheatham's new legal team. A hearing is set for the case Thursday, April 24.
Cheatham is currently on death row for the murders, which occurred in 2003.
