Man convicted of Amanda Taylor’s murder asks for new appeal

COLBERT COUNTY, Ala. – The man convicted of the murder and dismemberment of Amanda Taylor has petitioned the court for relief from his conviction and sentence.

Ronald Weems was sentenced to life plus ten years in 2013 for Taylor’s murder.

In a letter sent to officials, Weems argues that the attorney appointed to him by the court for his appeal was late filing paperwork multiple times, never accepted his calls or responded to his letters, and never saw him to discuss the case.

He is asking the court for a new attorney and to rehear his appeal of his conviction.
