Supreme Court-Arizona Death Sentence

US Supreme Court won't hear Arizona death sentence case

This undated booking photo provided by the Arizona Department of Corrections shows James McKinney. The Supreme Court won't hear Arizona's appeal of a lower court ruling that overturned McKinney's death sentence and opened the door for other death row inmates in the state to challenge their sentences. On Monday, Oct. 3, 2016, the justices let stand the ruling that said Arizona unconstitutionally excluded evidence about McKinney's troubled childhood and post-traumatic stress disorder that might have led to a lesser punishment. McKinney was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to death in 1993. (Arizona Department of Corrections via AP)TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — The U.S. Supreme Court’s refusal to hear Arizona’s appeal of a lower court ruling that overturned a convicted murderer’s death sentence has opened the door for about 25 death row inmates to challenge their sentences.
