Fort Bragg commander upholds Hennis death sentence

FORT BRAGG, N.C. -- Fort Bragg's acting commander has approved the conviction and death sentence imposed on a soldier who was convicted of killing a Fayetteville woman and two children in 1985.



The Fayetteville Observer reported (http://bit.ly/wPevO1) that a Fort Bragg spokeswoman said Wednesday that Maj. Gen. Rodney Anderson approved the sentence for Timothy Hennis earlier this month. Anderson is acting senior commander of the 18th Airborne Corps.

Hennis' lawyers presented clemency material to Anderson in December, and he could have granted relief. The Army Court of Criminal Appeals will review the case next.

Hennis was convicted in April 2010 in the killings of Kathryn Eastburn and two of her daughters.

The court-martial was his third trial. He had been convicted, then acquitted in trials in civilian courts.

ok, I am confused.  I know of this case, but I was under the impression he was found not guilty on a second trial.  What did I miss?
