The night before Father Charles Engelhardt died, a fellow inmate claims, the priest gave a dying declaration:
"Paul, I do not feel well. Please understand that I am an innocent man, who was wrongly convicted."
On Dec. 22, the inmate, Paul H. Eline, a former Temple Law student, filed as an intervenor with the state Superior Court in the case of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania v. Charles Engelhardt, appellant.
In his application for third party intervention, Eline wrote that the matters he was bringing to the court's attention were "critical and constitute 'extraordinary circumstances' " that should be made part of the record.
