Supreme Court hears arguments in Fairbanks appeal

ST. PAUL - The Minnesota Supreme Court heard oral arguments today in the appeal of the man convicted of killing a Polk County sheriff's deputy.

Defense attorneys say 35-year-old Thomas Fairbanks should not have been prosecuted for Chris Dewey's murder because the deputy died 18 months after he was shot.

They also argue moving the trial from Mahnomen to Polk county and showing the jury photos of Dewey's autopsy denied Fairbanks his right to a fair trial.
