Stephen Michael West's Appeal Denied

Tennessee death row inmate Stephen Michael West has had his appeal denied by the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals. "A panel on the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati revealed Thursday it has ruled against Stephen Michael West, who has been on death row since 1986 for fatally stabbing Wanda Romines and her 15-year-old daughter, Sheila, in Union County, which is in northeast Tennessee."

"West's attorneys argued that the judge erred by refusing to admit evidence that could have placed responsibility for the crimes on another man, that the trial was prejudiced by prosecutorial misconduct and that he received ineffective representation during the sentencing phase."

A horrible crime by a vicious criminal. 15 years? He should have been executed years ago. Just think of all that CO2 that has been wasted by keeping him alive.
