WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – In Trumbull County Common Pleas court Monday, a visiting judge from Summit County heard arguments about whether convicted killer Danny Lee Hill should be allowed to ask for a new trial.
Hill appeared by video conference from the state prison where he is held.
Judge Patricia Cosgrove made no decision on Monday, giving the state until December 31 to file a request, should they want an additional hearing on this matter.
Hill has been on death row for almost 30 years, after he was convicted in the attack, rape and brutal murder of 12-year-old Raymond Fife. Fife was walking through a wooded field in Warren when he was attacked and killed by Hill.
