13 Feb 2006 Child Killer to Be Resentenced Due to Technicality
Maryland has ordered a new sentencing hearing for a “man” who slit an eight-year-old’s throat, killing her.
Apparently, the evil killer, in the words of the Washington Post, “was not questioned rigorously enough before he was permitted to waive his right to be sentenced by a jury.”
The evil killer’s lawyer, the Post reports, admits the evidence against his client was “airtight on the murder.” He disputes whether he kidnapped the victim first.
The Post also says:
Harford County State’s Attorney Joseph I. Cassilly said he was dismayed by the result, particularly because the state prevailed on each individual claim the court considered. “I’m doing a real bad job explaining to this family how we can win the individual issues and still have to go back for resentencing,” Cassilly said.
I bet that is hard to explain.
