DEATH PENALTY-NEW TRIAL
US Supreme Court orders lower court to reconsider whether condemned Ohio killer gets new trial

Reported by: Associated Press

WASHINGTON


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.

John Drummond was sentenced to death for a baby's slaying in a 2003 Youngstown drive-by shooting. The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled last year that Drummond should get a new trial.

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.
