People v. Avila (Cal. Supreme Ct. - June 30, 2014)

The California Supreme Court unanimously affirms a conviction and death sentence.

But would you really expect otherwise?  Defendant is Jose Avila, the killer of five-year old Samantha Runnion.  I'd have been stunned -- truly, remarkably stunned -- had the California Supreme Court done anything other than what it did in this incredibly high-profile case.
