NASHVILLE, Ark. (AP) — A Stamps man who was convicted and sentenced to life in prison for hiring a man to kill his estranged wife is asking for a new trial.
The motion by 66-year-old David Camp filed in Howard County Circuit Court claims ineffective legal counsel. The Texarkana Gazette reports that a hearing on the motion is scheduled for Nov. 18.
Camp was convicted in 2009 in the May 2008 shooting death of 42-year-old Robin Camp inside a Nashville department store where she worked. Prosecutors say David Camp hired Harry Surber of Ashdown to kill Robin Camp because he thought she was having an affair.
Surber is serving 40 years in prison after pleading guilty in 2009 to first-degree murder in the case.
