Myers Murder Appeal Set Go Start In March

Last updated on Tuesday, February 5, 2008

(INDIANAPOLIS) - Oral arguments are set for next month in the appeal of a man convicted of murdering a 19-year-old Indiana University student.

The three-member Indiana Appeals Court has set the case for March 20 in Indianapolis.

In 2006, John Myers II was convicted of murdering Jill Behrman, who disappeared in 2000 while cycling. Her remains were found in April 2003.

The appeal filed in September argues that jurors misbehaved and that pretrial publicity tainted the trial.
