Anglin, who is serving life in prison, claimed multiple reasons for appealing his conviction. In general, Anglin felt his case wasn't properly handled and that the court allowed things to enter the official record that reflected poorly upon his case. The justices didn’t buy them.
Anglin gave Wright the money, but Anglin complained that he couldn’t smell the marijuana and handed it back to the dealer. Wright then pulled out the gun and told the two to get out of the car, according to the court opinion.
As they fought in the car, Anglin wrenched the gun out of Wright’s hand and hit him on the head with it a few times before Anglin got out and shot Wright once.
