Kansas Court Upholds Death Sentence in Sheriff Shooting
"The Kansas Supreme Court has affirmed the death penalty conviction of Scott Cheever.
The case has been enmeshed in multiple legal battles over the state’s death penalty law. This is just the second such conviction to be affirmed since 1994, when the state’s death penalty statute was enacted.
'The Kansas Supreme Court has not upheld that many death penalty cases,' said University of Kansas Law Professor Lumen 'Lou' Mulligan."
