Because the national news, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and their ilk can't play the race card.

Jodi Arias was granted a three-week delay of the start of the penalty phase of her death penalty retrial, set now to begin September 9.
Aug. 22, 2014

MARICOPA COUNTY, Ariz., Aug. 22 (UPI) -- A Maricopa County judge granted Jodi Arias a three-week delay to prepare for retrial, more than 15 months after she was convicted of murdering her ex-boyfriend.

Arias was convicted in May 2013 of the murder of Travis Alexander, and while the jury found her eligible for the death penalty, ultimately was unable to decide her sentence.

Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Sherry Stephens granted Arias, who is representing herself, a three-week delay from September 8 to September 29, when a new jury will begin to decide her fate.

If the new jury is unable to come to agreement, a judge would decide if Arias would get natural life in prison or the possibility of parole in 25 years.

Alexander was found murdered in his shower in a Phoenix suburb in June 2008. He had been stabbed multiple times, shot in the face and his throat deeply slashed. Arias acknowledged killing Alexander, but claimed self-defense.

A jury agreed with prosecutors that the murder was premeditated, and convicted Arias of first-degree murder.

While Arias is acting as her own attorney for the penalty phase retrial, having split with her legal team due to conflicts over strategy, her lawyers remain on the case as advisors.

Saudi Beheaded for Murder
24/08/2014

A Saudi was beheaded for murder on Friday in the latest of a spate of executions this month that has drawn condemnation from human rights groups.

Othman al-Balawi was put to the sword in the northwestern city of Tabuk, an interior ministry statement carried by the official SPA news agency said.

He had been sentenced to death for stabbing to death fellow Saudi Ahmed al-Atawi following a dispute.

His execution came hours after another Saudi, Fahad al-Khalidi, was beheaded in eastern port city of Jubail for the shooting death of fellow national, Abdulrahman al-Gahtani.

The latest beheadings bring to 37 the number of executions carried out in Saudi Arabia this year, according to an AFP tally.

Human Rights Watch voiced alarm on Thursday at the surge in the number of executions this month, that saw 19 people beheaded between August 4 and 20.

It said eight of them had been convicted of nonviolent offenses, and described the use of the death penalty in their cases as "particularly egregious."

Rape, murder, apostasy, armed robbery and drug trafficking are all punishable by death under Saudi Arabia's strict version of Islamic sharia law.

Nope ... this only takes a 1/30 of a second - no pain whatsoever, but the mess is a bit of a problem. I am sure someone would clean it up without complaining:

The solution is to use methods of execution that do not require medical expertise, and to train professional executioners whose primary training is how use the method to kill quickly, efficiently, and humanely. That's not what a doctor is.

Nowadays there is usually no executioner, except in shootings. There's an execution team. That causes "diffusion of responsibility" and also diffusion of expertise.

I suggest multiple executioners at any one execution to maintain a pool of experts and to have multiple eyes watching the process for mistakes, but only having one of them at a time carry out the critical steps of the procedure.

What is the point of even thinking about this.

Not going to happen in a billion years as he's got loads of appeals left and then the liberal judges to save him!

Convicted killer Derrick Todd Lee loses appeal
August 20, 2014

BATON ROUGE Condemned serial killer Derrick Todd Lee has failed to convince a state judge that he deserves a new trial over the slaying of former LSU graduate student Charlotte Murray Pace in 2002.

Lee's case now goes to the Louisiana Supreme Court. If justices there also reject Lee's arguments, the case would move to the federal post-conviction relief stage.

State District Judge Richard Anderson on Tuesday denied the 45-year-old St. Francisville man's state court petition for post-conviction relief. Anderson rejected, among other things, Lee's claims of ineffective assistance of counsel at the guilt and penalty phases of his trial in Baton Rouge.

Lee was found guilty in 2004 of first-degree murder in the slaying of 22-year-old Pace on May 31, 2002, and was sentenced to death.
