The Iowa Supreme Court will hear an appeal Thursday from the man convicted of killing Ed Thomas.

Mark Becker admits he shot and killed the Aplington-Parkersburg head football coach on June 24th, 2009. His attorney argues Becker was legally insane at the time of the murders and the district court made errors during the first trial.

An appellate court upheld Becker’s conviction last year.

Thursday’s hearing is being held at Drake’s Scheslow Auditorium to give Drake Law students a chance to observe.
