SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. — Attorneys for a man convicted of a 1988 double murder in Nebraska want to access autopsy records in an effort to find DNA evidence that might free their client.

Jeff Boppre has argued for years that he was framed for the Scottsbluff killings of Richard Valdez and his pregnant girlfriend, Sharon Condon.

The Nebraska Supreme Court has upheld his conviction multiple times.

Boppre's attorneys are scheduled to argue their case this morning in Scotts Bluff County District Court.
