Cases of Interest


CRIMINAL LAW--MURDER--DEATH PENALTY. The Court held that the defendant was entitled to vacation of his death sentence based on an agreement with a state attorney for the state not to seek the death penalty in exchange for the defendant's cooperation in finding the body of the murder victim. The defendant's agreement with the state attorney in the judicial circuit where some of the acts constituting the defendant's offenses occurred was binding on the state attorney for a different judicial circuit where the trial was held.

CRIMINAL LAW--SENTENCING--DEATH PENALTY--POST CONVICTION RELIEF. The Court held that where a post conviction court had vacated the defendant's death sentences on the basis of the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Hurst v. Florida, the court did not err in denying the defendant's claim that he was entitled to be resentenced to life imprisonment. Double jeopardy does not bar a new penalty phase in which the defendant will again be eligible for the death penalty.
