Lawyers for Mississippi death-row inmate want conviction overturned

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 07/22/2014 - 07:18
By Emily Le Coz JACKSON Miss. (Reuters) - Attorneys for a Mississippi death-row inmate who was tried six times for the same killings told the state Supreme Court on Monday that his most recent trial was unfair and his conviction should be overturned. Lawyers for Curtis Flowers, a black man convicted in the 1996 slayings of four people at a furniture store from which he had been fired days earlier, said jury selection in his 2010 trial was racially biased and that evidence against him was both lacking and misrepresented by prosecutors.  “No one can know what the jury would have done in the absence of those errors,” said Sheri Lynn Johnson, an attorney for Flowers, now 44. Flowers was convicted and sentenced to death in 1997, 1999 and 2004, but the state Supreme Court overturned each of those convictions – the first two because of prosecutorial misconduct and the third because of racial discrimination during jury selection.

Traps set after reports of giant snake on New Jersey's Lake Hopatcong

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 07/22/2014 - 07:17
(Reuters) - In a scene that could open the film "Snakes on a Jet Ski," New Jersey animal control workers have set traps to snare a reported 20-foot-long serpent slithering through the waters of Lake Hopatcong. Tales of the giant snake brought the state Department of Environmental Protection to the fresh water lake in northern New Jersey - the state's largest at 4 square miles (10 square km) - but the mystery has only deepened, DEP spokesman Bob Considine said on Monday. "One person says it's a boa constrictor, another says it's an anaconda," Considine said. "We don't have any confirmation of this snake at all." While a pet owner with a permit is allowed to keep a boa constrictor in New Jersey, anacondas are prohibited, Considine said.Initial reports of the creature surfaced more than a week ago when a resident of the lake popular with motor boat enthusiasts and jet skiers said he saw the snake under a dock at his boathouse.

New Mexico teens charged with beating two homeless men to death

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 07/22/2014 - 07:15
By Joseph Kolb ALBUQUERQUE N.M. (Reuters) - Prosecutors have charged three New Mexico teens with murder for allegedly beating to death two homeless men whose bodies were so badly disfigured they have yet to be identified, police and the Albuquerque District Attorney's Office said. Kayla Anderson, a spokeswoman for the district attorney's office, said Alex Rios, aged 18, as well as a 16-year-old and a 15-year-old were arrested on Saturday and appeared in state court on Monday charged with open counts of first degree murder. According to a criminal complaint filed by police, the two younger teens live across the street from the vacant lot on Albuquerque's west side where the killings took place. The complaint filed by Detective Geoffrey Stone says the 16-year-old admitted to officers he and the other two defendants had beaten more than 50 people in random attacks over the past year, but that he said they went too far in the latest assault.

U.S. court denies bid to reconsider stay of Arizona execution

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 07/22/2014 - 06:37
By David Schwartz PHOENIX (Reuters) - A federal appeals court on Monday rejected a bid by Arizona to remove a block that stops the state executing a double murderer until he is provided with more information about the drugs to be used to put him to death. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals denied the state's request for the full court to review the case of Joseph Wood, who had been slated to be executed on Wednesday for killing his ex-girlfriend and her father in 1989 at an automotive body shop in Tucson. On Saturday a three-member panel of the court put the execution on hold, saying Wood was entitled to the information about the lethal injection procedure and had raised "serious questions" that his rights were being violated. In a 2-1 decision, the panel said the 55-year-old Wood could suffer "irreparable harm" if the information were not disclosed by the state about the drugs to be used and the qualifications of the medical staff to be involved.     A spokeswoman for Arizona's attorney general said the state planned to file an application later on Monday with U.S. Supreme Court in an attempt to lift the stay.
