The State

April 19, 1985

A federal appeals court in San Francisco upheld the murder conviction and death sentence of John Harvey Adamson in the 1976 car-bombing death of Arizona Republic reporter Don Bolles. The action by the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals apparently leaves only a U.S. Supreme Court appeal remaining for Adamson, whose charge was increased to first-degree murder after he changed his mind about testifying against two other men. Arizona courts have already upheld his conviction.
