READ: Arizona Supreme Court Affirms "Baseline Killer's" Death Sentence

The Arizona Supreme Court today unanimously upheld the death sentence for Mark Goudeau, the Baseline Killer. Goudeau was convicted on 9 1st degree murder counts (and 67 charges overall).

The 76 page opinion (below) considered 16 separate appealable issues stemming from the arrest through the sentencing process and including DNA, right to counsel, waiver of mitigation (and more).

The 9 murders took place in 2005 and 2006, and the search for the so-called Baseline Killer received much public attention at the time.
