ROCK HILL, S.C. - The nation's highest court asked for more than 3,000 pages of trial notes, transcripts and evidence in a Rock Hill rape and murder.
Billy Cope's lawyers have asked the U.S. Supreme Court to review his conviction.
He was found guilty in 2004 of conspiring with another man to rape and kill his 12-year-old daughter.
Cope's lawyers may not find out until October whether the Supreme Court will hear his case.
