(WMBF) - A judge has ten days to decide if a man on death row for killing two people in South Carolina will get a new trial.
Tuesday, the judge heard arguments to determine if Stephen Stanko's lawyer was competent during the original trial.
Stanko is seeking a new trial for the 2005 killing of 74-year-old Henry Turner of Conway.
He was sentenced to death for that case in 2009.
In 2006, he was also sentenced to death for the murder of his live-in girlfriend in Georgetown.
