The U.S. Supreme Court has ordered a lower court to reconsider its decision that a condemned Ohio killer should get a new trial in the death of a 3-month-old boy.
The Supreme Court on Monday ordered the appeals court to reconsider that decision in light of a Supreme Court ruling last week. That ruling said a Kentucky death row inmate was not entitled to a new sentencing hearing despite his claim that jurors received faulty instructions.
Drummond's lawyer, Alan Rossman, says he'll challenge the decision, arguing that the two cases are different.
