Cotton County,Okla_An Oklahoma Appeals Court has denied a hearing for Ricky Malone, the man who gunned down a highway patrolman in Cotton County back in 2003. Malone requested the hearing to present evidence in his appeal.
Malone was convicted of murder for shooting Trooper Nik Green. Green was trying to arrest Malone for allegedly operating a mobile meth lab out of his car. Malone was sentenced to death for the crime. Malone also asked the court for a hearing to produce evidence against his defense attorneys. He says the evidence shows they have been ineffective during his trial and appeal.
