We are one step closer to learning whether or not convicted murderer Michael Blagg will get a new trial.
In a hearing Friday at the Mesa County Courthouse a judge set a date for a hearing on the latest attempt by Michael Blagg's attorneys to get a new trial.
In 2004, a jury convicted Blagg of murdering his wife, Jennifer, in their Redlands home. The couple's six-year–old daughter, Abby, is still missing and presumed dead.
Defense attorneys say one of the jurors who convicted Blagg had bad eyesight and they're questioning the fact that the juror did not report the problem.
Prosecutors have argued that is not enough to re-do the whole trial.
Blagg is serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole.
The two day hearing on the motion for a new trial is set for January.
