People v. Parson (Cal. Supreme Ct. - July 10, 2008)

It's not the usual death penalty case where the defendant forthrightly admits to killing the victim. But it's also not surprising that's the case here, since the evidence against the defendant was stunningly overwhelming.

Sound strategy, I guess. Didn't work though. Still sentenced to death. And unanimously affirmed. Albeit after 14-plus years.
