Former Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor is asking the state's highest court to hear an appeal regarding his murder conviction.

In a petition filed on Thursday, Noor asked the Minnesota Supreme Court to define the difference between third-degree murder and manslaughter.

The move comes the Minnesota Court of Appeals upheld Noor's third-degree murder conviction earlier this month.
