The man convicted of abducting and killing Alexis Murphy says he plans to seek a new trial in a different county.

In a jailhouse interview with a Lynchburg newspaper, 48 year old Randy Allen Taylor blames his conviction, in part, on jurors who were influenced by Murphy supporters in the courtroom.

They wore pink ribbons and clothing in her memory.

Taylor declined to answer questions about the night Murphy vanished.

He's scheduled for sentencing on July 23.
