ARKANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) -- The Cowley County prosecutor says a response is planned to an appeal from a death row inmate convicted in the 2007 murder of a Cowley County student.

Justin Thurber of Arkansas City filed the appeal with the Kansas Supreme Court in July, contending that several errors were made during his trial. Thurber was convicted in February 2009 in the death of 19-year-old Jodi Sanderholm, whose battered body was found in January 2007 in the Kaw Wildlife Area.

The appeal contends several errors were significant enough to reverse the verdict.

The Arkansas City Traveler reports (http://bit.ly/V6dUQm ) Cowley County Attorney Chris Smith said Friday that the Kansas Attorney General's Office has until April to file a response. He says a hearing on Thurber's appeal before the Supreme Court has not been scheduled.
