Colorado public defenders for a man convicted of killing his wife say their client didn't get a fair trial because one of the jurors was legally blind.

At a hearing today, records from Mesa State College and an eye care clinic were released to the courts under a subpoena.

In 2004 Michael Blagg was convicted of shooting and killing his wife Jennifer.

He is serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole.

Today's hearing was held to gather the records and another will be held in late March at which time Judge David Bottger could rule on a motion for a retrial.

Deputy district attorney Rich Tuttle says as far as the motion for a new trial goes, he is taking the position that the motion should be denied and that the juror's vision issues- if any- do not arise to the level of granting a new trial.
