RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) - Attorneys representing a man charged with killing a Rutland supermarket worker more than 16 years ago say they have not been given enough time to prepare for the death penalty retrial of Donald Fell and are seeking evidence from police.

The Rutland Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2j5iC00 ) that the defense wants to resolve issues including access to some evidence possessed by the Rutland City Police Department, some marijuana or crack pipes and information from a mental health examination of Fell.

A judge ruled last month that the retrial will start at the end of February.

Fell was convicted and sentenced to death in 2005 for the 2000 killing of Terry King, who was abducted in Rutland and killed in New York.

Fell’s conviction was overturned in 2014 due to juror misconduct.
