Duncan Says He Doesn't Want To Appeal

Posted: Updated:
     A federal judge today will decide if convicted killer Joseph Duncan
can...or wants to...appeal his death sentence.   
     There has been some confusion whether Duncun wants to appeal. 
     His attorney last week filed an appeal.
     But Duncan has written  a letter to the judge, saying he dosen't want to appeal.  
     Duncun's lawyers argue the federal judge no longer has jurisdiction, that the matter should be handled by the 9th U.S. circuit court of appeals.
