Fox 4 was there as Sievers walked in smirking toward family members in the courtroom.
The defense made several motions for a new trial, admitted new evidence and called two witnesses to the stand. They were requesting a new trial, following the death sentence Mark Sievers received for his role in the murder of his wife.
