:bump: for Randi, missing 15 years this month. :(


There was a break in Mebruer's case in February 2004, when DNA testing linked suspected serial killer Derrick Todd Lee to her presumed murder.

Louisiana’s highest court put an end Friday to condemned serial killer Derrick Todd Lee’s state court appeals, more than a decade after he was convicted and sentenced to death in the brutal 2002 slaying of 22-year-old LSU graduate student Charlotte Murray Pace in her Baton Rouge home.

The state Supreme Court said it found no error in state District Judge Richard Anderson’s August 2014 ruling that rejected Lee’s request for a new trial.

The high court also stated it found “no basis” for sending the case back to Anderson for an evidentiary hearing and “no grounds” for throwing out his first-degree murder conviction and death sentence.

“That’s awesome. That’s wonderful news. I’m so stunned,” Pace’s mother, Ann Pace, said when told of the action taken by the Louisiana Supreme Court. “It’s been 11 years (since the 2004 trial). I had almost given up hope that it would finish this second part.”
Lee’s attorney, Capital Post-Conviction Project of Louisiana director Gary Clements, said he will now take Lee’s case to U.S. District Court in Baton Rouge for the federal post-conviction relief stage — a stage that can take years.

Serial killer closer to execution in woman's death (http://www.clarionledger.com/story/news/2015/09/21/la-serial-killer-closer-execution-paces-death/72575268/)
Jimmie E. Gates, The Clarion-Ledger 8:23 p.m. CDT September 22, 2015

Louisiana serial killer Derrick Todd Lee is one step closer to being executed for the 2002 killing of 22-year-old Jackson native Charlotte Murray Pace.

“ It has been 11 years since this serial murderer was convicted and sentenced to death in the vicious, violent murder of my daughter, Jackson native and Millsaps graduate Murray Pace,” Ann Pace said. “It has taken 11 long, often frustrating, often heartbreaking years for surviving family and friends of this killer’s numerous victims to complete only the first two of three levels of adjudication. We now face the third (federal) level of appeals that will begin in the federal district court in Baton Rouge and end on an unknown timeline at the US Supreme Court (again).”
