A public defender is still attacking the admissibility of convicted killer Horst Gunter Sabla’s confession more than two years after Sabla was sentenced.

This time, however, his lawyer claims the statements Sabla made to investigators should never have been used in his trial because he was illegally arrested, and his lawyers erred in not arguing that position.

Public defender Karl Hinkebein of Columbia alleges numerous other defense errors as well in an amended motion in Camden County Circuit Court he filed July 10 under Missouri Supreme Court Rule 29.15.
