Rodriguez Asks for A New Hearing

(AP) The man convicted of killing a Pequot Lakes woman is asking for a new hearing before a Federal Appeals Courts.

Alfonso Rodriguez Jr, of Crookston, was found guilty in 2006 of killing 22-year-old Dru Sjodin, a University of North Dakota Student.

A three judge panel of the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed the death sentence in September. His lawyers are now asking for a hearing in front of the entire Circuit Court. They claim the ruling conflicts with other Circuit Court and Supreme Court rulings.

Dru was kidnapped from a Grand Forks Shopping mall on November 22nd, 2003. Her body wasn't found until the following April.
