EBENSBURG, Pennsylvania — A man serving 14 to 31 years in prison for an attack on a western Pennsylvania police station will represent himself during his Superior Court appeal.

The (Johnstown) Tribune-Democrat (http://bit.ly/1Bsuhx7 ) says the appeals court previously ruled that 48-year-old Kevin McGee can't be represented by a standby, or advisory, attorney. That's how his trial was conducted.

McGee refused to stay in the courtroom, so much of the trial was conducted in his absence while the attorney who was merely supposed to help McGee represent himself was present.

A Cambria County judge on Thursday told McGee during a video conference from his state prison that the same thing won't happen during the appeal.

Police shot McGee after he aimed at an officer after shooting up a cruiser outside the Richland Township station on Sept. 12, 2012.
