Ind. Courts - "Myers’ attorney tells how he took the murder case"

That is the headline of the long story today presenting continuing comprehensive coverage of the John Myers PCR hearing, reported by Laura Lane of the Bloomington Herald-Times.

This story from Stan Jastrzebski of Indiana Pubic Media also reports on Thursday's hearing. Some quotes:

What was supposed to be the next-to-last day of the post-conviction hearing for the man found guilty of killing IU student Jill Behrman turned out to be just a middle round of sparring Thursday.

In a high-pitched, slightly scratchy voice which required him to frequently sip from a water bottle, attorney Patrick Baker – a member of Myers’ original defense team — seemed almost to enjoy a five-hour back-and-forth with defense lawyer Anne Burgess. * * *

But the day ended before the defense could finish its questioning of Baker. And since a previous agreement was in place stating he is unable to testify Friday due to personal concerns, the hearing will continue beyond the end of the week.
