Today's CAAF daily journal update included the denial of a petition for extraordinary relief in the Murphy capital case. Murphy v. Maggs, __ M.J. ___, Misc. No. 09-8003/AR (C.A.A.F. Jan. 15, 2009). That ruling appears to clear the way for the Murphy case to return to the trial level for resentencing -- bringing the number of ongoing trial-level capital cases to at least five (Hennis, Quintanilla, Kreutzer, Walker, Murphy).
