Mr. Shellito was convicted of the first-degree murder of Sean Hathorne, who was fatally shot in 1994. The jury voted 11-1 to recommend a death sentence and the trial court condemned Mr. Shellito to death. This Court upheld his death sentence on direct appeal. Mr. Shellito filed a postconviction challenge in the trial court. His motion was denied and this appeal followed.
