Guam - Carl Gargarita may be a convicted killer, but he's appealing the jury's decision at the Supreme Court.

According to Gargarita's former legal counsel Peter Sablan, the Supreme Court has appointed attorney Leevin Camacho to the case.

Gargarita was sentenced to 15 years behind bars with five years suspended and credit for time served for the death of Anthony Giralao. Over a year ago Giralao reportedly initiated a fight with Gargarita in the parking lot of a Tumon bar over a woman. The two exchanged punches before Gargarita executed a rear naked chokehold forcing Giralao to black out and die later in at the hospital.

The jury found Gargarita not guilty of murder, but guilty of manslaughter.

Gargarita's next hearing date is a restitution hearing set for January 20th.
