Capital case chronicles

From around the blogsphere, here are some compelling accounts of compelling capital cases:

  • From SCOTUSblog, Lyle Denniston here provides a thorough report on the plea entered by Zacarias Moussaoui to six conspiracy counts alleging he had a role in various terrorist plots and AG Gonzales's statement that the government would continue to seek the death penalty. TalkLeft has more on the story here.

  • From The Connecticut Law Blog, Gideon here provides a thorough report on the ruling that Connecticut's death row volunteer Michael Ross, who is scheduled to be executed on May 11, is competent and can choose to forgo any appeals.

  • From TalkLeft, here is a thorough report on the decision by the Virginia Supreme Court to uphold the death sentence of John Muhammad, one of the DC snipers.
