The State

June 05, 1986

Gerald Gallego lost a bid to get the Nevada Supreme Court to reconsider its ruling upholding his death sentence for the sex-fantasy murders of two teen-age California girls whose battered bodies were found in rural Nevada. The high court issued a one-sentence order in Carson City denying the petition for a rehearing of its decision last December to uphold Gallego's sentence of death by lethal injection. Gallego was sentenced to death for beating Karen Chipman-Twiggs and Stacey Redican of Sacramento to death with a hammer in April, 1980. Gallego also was sentenced to death in California for murdering two college students in Contra Costa County.
