(WDAZ-TV) - A Manvel-area man convicted of murdering his brother appealed his case to the state Supreme Court on Tuesday.

45-year-old Rodney Chisholm was convicted of murdering his brother, Donald, and sentenced to 30 years in prison.

The appeal process started with both attorneys presenting their cases.

Chisholm's attorney argued that the district court abused its discretion when it decided evidence of a prior firearm incident with Donald Chisholm happened too long ago to be relevant in the case.

There will be one more court date before the judgment is made in this case.
