COLBERT COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

 A convicted killer from Colbert County said his attorney dropped the ball, and he wants to have his appeal re-heard.

Ronald Weems submitted a letter (PDF) claiming his attorney never wrote, called or visited during the appeal. Weems says the attorney never contested any of the prosecution's motions during the case.

Weems was convicted of killing Amanda Taylor last year. The conviction was upheld last month.

Three others pleaded guilty to helping Weems dispose of the body. He is serving a life sentence at the Limestone Correctional Facility.
