OKLAHOMA CITY -- Friends trying to free former pharmacist and convicted murderer Jerome Ersland delivered more petition signatures Thursday to Gov. Mary Fallin's office.

A judge sentenced Ersland in July to life in prison for the shooting death of 16-year-old Antwun Parker. Parker and an accomplice tried to rob Reliable Pharmacy in May 2009.

Ersland was moved to a medium-security prison in Lexington, Okla., on Aug. 4. Karen Monahan -- one of Ersland's friends -- has been gathering signatures on petitions for months, urging the governor to overturn the conviction.
