James Ford Seale is seeking to overturn his conviction for kidnapping two black men who were killed in rural Mississippi in 1964.

Court officials say a decision could be announced shortly after a Sept. 27 conference on the case.

Seale is now 75-years-old.

He was convicted in 2007 of two counts of kidnapping and one count of conspiracy to commit kidnapping.

For the convictions Seale was given three life sentences.
