People v. Price (Cal. Ct. App. - Feb. 9, 2017)

"Defendant Kiarra Marie Price, then 20 years old, along with two friends, participated in a robbery of Benjamin Merrill during which one of them needlessly and senselessly shot and killed 22-year-old Merrill."

I'm not sure that Justice Stewart needs to say both "needlessly and senselessly".  Seems a bit overkill, if you'll pardon the pun.

Though I agree that the killing was needless.  Senseless, even.
