The judge set a May 20 deadline for the attorneys, Owen Seman and Brian Sichko, to file an amended petition. Poplawski filed one on his own earlier this week, alleging multiple instances of ineffective assistance of counsel over 115 pages, including for his trial attorneys’ failure to object when the prosecutor referred to the defendant as a “dog,” “bum,” “coward,” and racist.

Officers Paul J. Sciullo II, Stephen J. Mayhle and Eric G. Kelly were killed on April 4, 2009, when they responded to Poplawski’s Stanton Heights home for a domestic dispute with his mother. Members of the officers’ families sat in the first row of the gallery in the courtroom this afternoon, along with detectives who worked the initial case and Assistant District Attorney Lisa Pellegrini.
