NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A death row inmate is asking for a new trial on charges that he helped a New Orleans policewoman rob and kill at a restaurant where she sometimes worked off-duty.
The Times-Picayune reports that the hearing for Rogers LaCaze opens Monday and could last more than a week.
He was convicted of helping Antoinette Frank rob Kim Anh Restaurant and kill her patrol partner and two of the owners' children in 1995.
They were tried separately.
Attorneys at the Capital Appeals Project have filed hundreds of pages of documents with Criminal District Court in New Orleans.
