Attorney aids in pharmacist's appeal

Oklahoma City attorney Doug Friesen has been in the news this year because he is helping former pharmacist Jerome Jay Ersland appeal a murder conviction.

Ersland, 60, is serving a life term for fatally shooting a wounded robber in 2009 inside the Reliable Discount Pharmacy in south Oklahoma City. A jury last year found Ersland guilty of first-degree murder.

Friesen is asking the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals to grant a new trial. Friesen claims Ersland's lead trial attorney was inept.
