Cherry Hill, NJ – A man convicted of having his wife killed wants a third jury to consider his case.
Fred Neulander says it was unfair that his lawyers in his 2002 murder trial were not allowed to delve more deeply into how the hit man he was convicted of hiring was once a suspect in a second murder.
Neulander’s public defender will make that and other arguments Monday before a state appellate court in Trenton. It will be the first court appearance for Neulander since January 2003, when he was sentenced to life in prison for murder.
He was convicted by a jury in 2002, one year after an earlier jury deadlocked on the case.
