SCOTUS Leaning Against Sheriff's Killer
October 16, 2013
The U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday appeared skeptical of a Kansas man's attempt to overturn his conviction for killing Greenwood County Sheriff Matt Samuels in January of 2005.
Justices debated whether to uphold a Kansas Supreme Court decision that threw out Scott Cheever's capital murder conviction and death sentence, reports the Associated Press.
The Kansas court had ruled that Cheever's rights had been violated by prosecutors using a court-ordered mental evaluation from a different trial against him.
A decision is expected early next year.

This is b.s. and what about Samuel's rights? I hope SCOTUS sends this a**hole to his death, and just end him already.

This is b.s. for sure. I'm retired from Colorado, and now live near Salina, KS. I've learned HHS Secretary Sebelius was the gov. at the time this happened. She didn't respond, and/or care about this. Gov. Brownback has since had legislative law change how, and what the Kansas Supreme Court can do concerning these types of failures as well as how a Justice is appointed to the KS Supreme Court. Most everybody here wants his hide.
