Koula attorneys expected to proceed with appeal Monday



LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) -- Eric Koula's defense attorneys are expected to file a post-conviction motion in La Crosse County circuit court Monday. 

Koula was found guilty by a jury in the murders of his parents, Dennis and Merna Koula, in June, 2012. La Crosse County Judge Scott Horne then sentenced Koula to life in prison in August of the same year.

Koula is appealing his conviction. 

He's being represented by the state public defender's office. 

Monday is the deadline for his attorneys to file a post conviction motion, raising issues or complaints regarding the case, in La Crosse County court. 

The circuit court judge will rule on the motion. Both sides then have the option to appeal the ruling to the state court of appeals.
