More than a decade after a jury convicted him of murder in the death of a Hamilton County deputy sheriff, Marlon Duane Kiser is coming back to court. Kiser's death penalty appeal began at 9 a.m. Monday in front of Criminal Court Judge Don Poole. Kiser's attorneys say Poole should overturn his sentence and his conviction because the public defenders in his 2003 trial were not effective. Poole's courtroom is in Division III.
