CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - The Wyoming Supreme Court will hear arguments Tuesday in the appeal of a Cheyenne man convicted of killing two people and wounding a third.

Nathaniel Castellanos is serving a life sentence in prison after he was found guilty of shooting three people at his home in August 2011.

The jury rejected the death penalty at trial.

In his appeal, the 36-year-old Castellanos argues that his public defender was not qualified to handle the case and that the state violated his right to a speedy trial by waiting more than 900 days to bring him before a jury.

State prosecutors say Castellanos got a fair trial. They are asking the high court to uphold the conviction and sentence.
