NMCCA sets aside death sentence in Walker

NMCCA today released its published opinion in United States v. Walker, __ M.J. __, No. NMCCA 9501607 (N-M. Ct. Crim. App. July 8, 2008). The opinion sets aside the finding of guilty to the premeditation element for one of the two premeditated murder findings, sets aside a robbery conviction, and sets aside the death sentence. Retrial is authorized at which a death sentence can again be imposed. Here's a link.
