A lawyer for a man convicted of shooting his lover's husband as they walked along the beach says he did not get a fair trial.
Thirty-three-year-old John Boyd Frazier is serving a sentence of life in prison without parole for the 1998 shooting in Myrtle Beach. He asked the South Carolina Supreme Court this week to throw out his conviction.
Frazier says a judge should have allowed evidence questioning whether he could be identified on the dark beach. Prosecutors say Frazier he killed 24-year-old William Brent Poole as he walked on the beach with his wife, Kimberly, on their third wedding anniversary.
Kimberly Poole is serving a life sentence after she was convicted of arranging the killing.
