RC Journal is reporting that SD Atty General Marty Jackley has filed paperwork in court seeking the death penalty for the two prison inmates who brutally murdered (yes I know…..allegedly….whatever) Ronald Johnson.
Attorney General Marty Jackley said the crime fits five of the 10 conditions set in state law that qualify for the death penalty. They are the death of a correctional officer, the manner of death, where and why it occurred, and the defendants’ criminal background.
Based on the published reports about the brutality of the murder and the criminal history of the two killers — I can’t see how you could argue for anything else. Are you satisfied with the decision of the AG?
