The attorney for a woman found guilty in the death of a police officer has asked the Colorado Supreme Court to throw out the conviction.
Attorney Kathleen Lord says Lisl Auman (LEE'-zul AH'-muhn) had no way of knowing her friend had guns in his car or that he would shoot Officer Bruce VanderJagt (VAN'-duhr-jack) following a burglary and car chase.
Auman was handcuffed in the back of a police car when Matthaeus Jaehnig shot VanderJagt, but authorities said she played a key role in the burglary.
Lord says the state statute allowing companions in a felony to be convicted of murder is wrong.
Assistant Attorney General Paul Koehler told the court the sentence was just.
A decision is not expected for some time.
