BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Attorneys for a man sentenced to life in prison for fatally beating a woman in Bismarck are arguing that some evidence should have been suppressed during his trial. Morris Brickle-Hicks is appealing his murder conviction before the North Dakota Supreme Court. A jury convicted him last fall of killing 40-year-old Misty Coffelt in April 2016 behind a farm goods store. He was sentenced to life in prison without parole. The Bismarck Tribune reports Brickle-Hicks' attorney, James Loraas, says incriminating statements and clothing evidence should have been suppressed because his client didn't voluntarily waive his Miranda rights in a police interview.
