Detrich v. Ryan, 619 F.3d 1038 (9th Cir. 2010): Pet. for Cert. Filed

Another gruesome and indefensible murder with no argument on guilt. In its usual rambling summary of counsel and his "ineffective defense" to a crime that warrants the death penalty no matter the content of the "mitigating" evidence, the Ninth Circuit panel remands the case for another hearing on the penalty phase.
