Man convicted in Cape Girardeau murder claims wrongful conviction

CAPE GIRARDEAU COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

A man convicted in a Cape Girardeau murder case wants to talk and a judge says he'll listen.

Judge William Syler has scheduled a motion hearing for Ryan Patterson late next month.

Patterson claims he was wrongfully convicted in the 2009 deaths of Jamie Orman, her 15-year-old son Derrick, and her unborn child.

He claims he had ineffective counsel and wants his guilty verdict thrown out.

He is serving three life sentences.

Prosecutors say Patterson killed them while he actually intended to kill Orman's boyfriend John Lawrence and burn his home to collect insurance money.

Lawrence's estranged wife Michelle admitted to planning the murders. She is also in jail. A third suspect, Samuel "Ray Ray" Hughes is also behind bars.

Both made a deal to testify against Patterson. 

Judge Syler set a motion hearing for October 28 which is the four year anniversary of the murder charges filed against him. The crime happened the evening of October 27, 2009.
