People v. Myles v. Livingston (Cal. Supreme Ct. - April 26, 2012)

Two different murder cases.  Two different death penalties.  Two different direct appeals to the California Supreme Court.

Decided on the same day.  Same result.  Convictions and death sentences unanimously affirmed in both cases.

So it's a race to see whether John Myles gets to die first or whether David Livingston will beat him to the needle.

Assuming, of course, that California voters don't vote in November to repeal the death penalty and replace it with LWOP.
