A Manvel-area man convicted of murdering his brother has appealed his case to the state Supreme Court. Forty-five year-old Rodney Chisholm was found guilty of murdering his brother Donald and sentenced to 30 years in prison.

The appeal process started with both attorneys presenting their cases. Chisholm argues that the district court abused discretion in determining 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 set before the judgment is made in this case.
