TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ The Shawnee County District Attorney's Office plans to ask the U.S. Supreme Court to review a decision to overturn the capital murder convictions of a Topeka man.
District Attorney Chad Taylor filed a motion late Thursday saying he will appeal the Kansas Supreme Court's decision to overturn the convictions of Phillip D. Cheatham.
Cheatham was convicted in 2005 in the December 2003 shooting deaths of two women and the wounding of a third at a Topeka home.
The Kansas Supreme Court overturned the convictions in January, saying Cheatham received ineffective counsel during his trial.
