some text Marlon Duane Kiser becomes emotional while appearing before Judge Don Poole in an attempt to appeal a death penalty sentence from 2003 in the murder of a Hamilton County Deputy Sheriff.

Marlon Kiser has spent more than a decade seeking to overturn his conviction for the 2003 murder of Deputy Donald Bond. 

Kiser has long maintained that Mike Chattin, his former roommate, framed him for the murder. But in pushing for further testing, it seems Kiser has further incriminated himself. 

On Tuesday, District Attorney General Neal Pinkston said a latent fingerprint found on Bond's patrol car that had previously gone untested belongs to Kiser. In March, Kiser's defense attorneys requested that law enforcement examine unidentified prints from the original investigation, including some on Bond's car and one on his flashlight.  

Prior to this identification, none of Kiser's DNA or fingerprints were found at the scene. Prosecutors said Kiser had and disposed of Bond's gear, but this is the first fingerprint that connects him to the victim.
