A hearing will be held Thursday in California for a former cornerback for the New Orleans Saints and several other teams who admitted he broke into his ex-girlfriend's apartment in La Verne and tried to kill her.
Defense lawyers representing Brandon Browner are asking a judge to allow their client to vacate his no contest plea.
Browner entered the plea last December and was sentenced to eight years in prison. He told the court he entered the woman's apartment last July, chased the victim, dragged her down and then smothered her in a carpet.
