CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - A Martinsburg, W.Va., attorney said Wednesday he might subpoena jurors from Raymond Hoak's voluntary manslaughter trial to find out more information about questionable juror notes that were found after the trial.
Paul Taylor has filed papers in Jefferson County Circuit Court asking that a mistrial, acquittal or new trial be ordered for Hoak.
Hoak, of Kearneysville, W.Va., was convicted Nov. 20 of voluntary manslaughter in the shooting death of Larry Hose, 29, of Kearneysville, outside Images nightclub along W.Va. 51 west of Charles Town.
Hoak has not been sentenced.
Jurors in Hoak's trial had a choice of four verdicts, including first-degree murder, second-degree murder, voluntary manslaughter and not guilty.
After jurors reached a verdict, a bailiff discovered a note on a white piece of paper in Circuit Judge Thomas W. Steptoe's courtroom.
