Appeals court to hear arguments in James Arthur Ray case Sept. 11

PHOENIX (WTAQ) - An appeals court in Arizona is scheduled to hear arguments September 11th on a request to drop negligent homicide convictions against James Arthur Ray.

He’s the self-help promoter found guilty of letting James Shore of Milwaukee and two others die in a sweat-lodge ceremony at a spiritual festival in 2009 near Sedona Arizona.

Ray’s lawyers are challenging instructions that were given to the jury in the original trial – plus the conduct of prosecutors during the proceeding.

The state attorney general has filed a cross-appeal. It said jurors should have been told that Ray had a duty to help sweat-lodge participants in distress, and to avoid putting them at a risk for harm.

The 40-year-old Shore died along with Liz Neuman of Prior Lake Minnesota and Kirby Brown of Westtown New York.
