BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A man sentenced to life behind bars for fatally beating a woman behind a Bismarck store last year plans to appeal his conviction.
The Bismarck Tribune says Morris Brickle-Hicks filed the notice of appeal weeks after he was sentenced for killing 40-year-old Misty Coffelt and leaving her to die behind Runnings in April 2016. Brickle-Hicks was convicted of felony murder.
Last month, South Central Judge John Grinsteiner sentenced the 35-year-old to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
