Man convicted in old slayings plans appeal

STANFORD, Ky. (AP) - A man convicted in June of slaying two
people in 2002 has filed notice that he plans to appeal his

Jamarkos Campbell was sentenced in July to life in prison with
parole possible after 25 years for the killings of Bo Upton and
Ryan Shangraw in central Kentucky. The Danville Advocate-Messenger
reports that Campbell filed notice last week that he needs a
court-appointed attorney to handle his appeal.

Campbell's attorneys, Edward L. Cooley and John C. Helmuth, have
also filed a motion to withdraw as Campbell's counsel during the
appeals process and have a public defender appointed.

Campbell was 16-years-old when Shangraw and Upton were shot
during what prosecutors said was a drug money robbery.

Three other men charged in the case have yet to face trial.
