Hearing today on appeal of IU student's convicted killer

MARTINSVILLE (AP) — A southern Indiana judge is expected to hear days of testimony in the case of a man seeking to appeal his conviction in the slaying of an Indiana University student.

The Morgan Superior Court judge was scheduled to begin hearing John R. Myers II's petition for post-conviction relief this morning. Myers is serving a 65-year-old sentence for the slaying of 19-year-old IU student and Bloomington native Jill Behrman.

Behrman vanished during a Bloomington bike ride in May 2000. Her remains in a remote Morgan County field in 2003.

The Herald-Times reports Myers' attorneys might enter up to 200 exhibits into evidence as part of Myers' petition for post-conviction relief, which are filed in cases where defendants such as Myers claim their lawyers failed to adequately represent them.
