NASHUA, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire man sentenced to over 20 years in prison for stabbing two teenagers he hired to do yard work is asking for a new trial, saying his court-appointed attorneys were ineffective.

Ronald Bourdon was sentenced in December 2012 after being convicted of attempted murder on 19-year-old Scott Dunlap and assault on 17-year-old Dylan Fitzgerald.

The two were hired on June 14, 2011, when Bourdon accused them of stealing a laptop.

The Telegraph reports (https://bit.ly/1kWqT56) Bourdon was in court at a hearing Monday and submitted depositions from his trial lawyers. Hillsborough County Attorney Patricia LaFrance called both lawyers to the stand.

The lawyers said they believed they had introduced enough doubt to the jury and advised Bourdon to not take the stand in his own defense, which he did.
