The Kansas Supreme Court is taking up the appeal of a man convicted of raping and killing an El Dorado teen who led a secret life as an Internet model.
The court scheduled oral arguments Wednesday in the capital murder case of Israel Mireles. He was sentenced to life without parole for the death of 18-year-old Emily Sander at a motel. It was later revealed that Sander also was known as Internet model Zoey Zane.
The Butler Community College student left a bar with Mireles in November 2007. Her body was found six days later.
Mireles fled to Mexico and was extradited after prosecutors agreed not to seek the death penalty.
The appeal focuses on the use of gruesome photos and the prosecutor's closing argument at trial.
