WILKES-BARRE — A man was in court this morning in Luzerne County trying to appeal his murder conviction.

Harlow Cuadra of Virginia Beach was sentenced to life in prison in 2009 for killing Bryan Kocis of Dallas Township.

Investigators say in 2007 Cuadra and another man stabbed Kocis and set fire to his house to cover up the crime.

Authorities determined Kocis was killed because he was a rival of Cuadra in the gay pornography business.

The appeal hearing in Luzerne County is scheduled to continue later this month.
