MARSHALL COUNTY, OK -- A man who was sentenced to life in prison, earlier this month, has filed a motion to withdraw his blind plea saying his attorney was not effective.

Joshua Scott is charged with killing Chad Page, Ashleigh Lindsey, and her unborn child in July of 2012.

Scott reached a deal with prosecutors and entered a blind plea of no contest.

Scott was sentenced on December 11th, but Thursday filed a motion to pull his blind plea.

A court document signed by Scott says quote, "the defendant will show that the defendant received ineffective assistance of council."

Thursday, Scotts attorney Eric Jones filed a motion to withdraw as Scott's counsel.
