death sentence

The U.S. Supreme Court won’t take the case of an Indiana man convicted of murder who says his lawyers weren’t good enough.

Jeffrey Weisheit was sentenced to death in 2013 for murdering two children in a fire he set. Weisheit appealed – he argued his lawyers did not provide him adequate counsel. For example, he says his attorneys didn’t work hard enough to get mental health records or call certain expert witnesses to help mitigate his sentence.
