Convicted Murderer Moves for Third Trial

   Once, twice and now a third time...Convicted killer, 20 year old Edward Hill  is asking for another trial.

   Hill appeared in a Smith County court Friday hoping for a re-trial. The court rescheduled the hearing for early January.

   Hill was charged and convicted for murdering Tyler convenience store owner, Buford Hinton, three years ago. That conviction was later overturned when Hill's confession was deemed inadmissible. Two months ago, a different jury convicted and sentenced Hill to life in prison.
