One of California's longest-serving death row inmates has had his sentence overturned for the third time. The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals said Lavell Frierson's attorney erred by failing to tell jurors of the defendant's history of mental retardation and child abuse. Frierson, 49, is on death row for the 1978 murder of Edgardo Kramer, a Peruvian airline employee, near Los Angeles International Airport.

The state Supreme Court Thursday reversed two death penalty verdicts and a third case where a man was sentenced to life in prison without parole for murdering a witness to a burglary he had committed. In reversing the life sentence of David D. Weidert, the court, in an opinion by Chief Justice Rose Elizabeth Bird, said state law allows for sentences of either death or life in prison without parole for murdering someone to prevent them from testifying in a "criminal proceeding."

Here's one thing that can be said with certainty about Keith Adcox, Steven Ainsworth, Rodney Alcala, Clarence Allen, Watson Allison, Jesse Andrews and Tony Ashumus.

Donald Beardslee, Ronald Lee Bell, Fernando Belmontes, Richard Benson, Rodney Berryman, Lawrence Bittaker and Maurice Bloom Jr.
