OKLAHOMA CITY -- The family of a 16-year-old who was killed in an attempted robbery at an Oklahoma City pharmacy is speaking out.

The sister of Antwun Parker says since pharmacist Jerome Ersland was found guilty of murder last month, her family has received threats and been harassed.

"Honestly, I think he was mad because he didn't get the other guy," says Parker's sister Angie. "He took his frustrations out on my little brother."

At least 15,000 people disagree with the verdict and have even signed a petition to try and free Jerome Ersland.

The signed papers will soon go to the pardon and parole board for its consideration.
