PITTSBURGH (AP) - A western Pennsylvania man serving 45 years to life in prison for the fatal shootings of three people at a birthday party is seeking to have a hearing to address new evidence.

Isaiah Hereford was convicted in August 2011 and received a mandatory life sentence. The former McKeesport man was resentenced in December 2014 after a U.S. Supreme Court ruling found mandatory life sentences for juvenile offenders are unconstitutional.

Hereford was 17 at the time of the June 2010 shootings.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/1SiJNmp ) that a defense attorney in court Wednesday said a woman saw two men running from the scene, neither of whom was Hereford.

Prosecutors say there was other evidence, including more than a dozen calls between Hereford and his co-defendant leading up to the slayings.
