A Pennsylvania couple is seeking a new trial following their conviction in the death of a 7-year-old boy adopted from Russia.
According to a Friday report in the York Daily Record ( http://bit.ly/sRSZnY), attorneys for Michael and Nanette Craver argue in post-trial motions that the evidence did not support the verdict.
Nathaniel Craver died of a head injury in August 2009. The Cravers say their son had fetal alcohol syndrome and a history of injuring himself.
But authorities contend the boy was abused and neglected. A jury last month found the Cravers guilty of involuntary manslaughter, child endangerment and conspiracy.
York County Common Pleas Court Judge John S. Kennedy called the verdicts "appropriate." He sentenced the Cravers to the 19 months they had already served in jail while awaiting trial.
