State Supreme Court Rejects Night Stalker's Appeal
POSTED: 11:49 am PDT August 7, 2006
SAN FRANCISCO -- The California Supreme Court upheld the convictions and death sentence Monday for serial killer Richard Ramirez whose so-called Night Stalker killing spree terrorized the Los Angeles area in the mid 1980s.
Ramirez, 46, was sentenced to death in 1989 for 13 Los Angeles-area murders in 1984 and 1985. Satanic symbols were left at murder scenes and some victims were forced to "swear to Satan" by the killer, who entered homes through unlocked windows and doors.
The justices unanimously denied claims that Ramirez was incompetent to stand trial, that the case should have been moved outside Los Angeles, and that all the killings should not have been handled at one trial.
The court also rejected an unusual claim that Ramirez should have been denied his choice of lawyers, who were hired by his family.

I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.

not sure why this is still going on,since SQV said that Ramirez is dying a horrible death from emphysema and lung cancer---wish he'd just hurry up and drop dead so we can at least try to forget about this murderous dog
