    FL - Delores Futrell, 65, found slain at her Jacksonville home, 5 Aug 2008

    Delores Futrell sounds like she was a wonderful, caring woman. How sad it is that a 19 year old neighbor slit this poor woman's throat.

    Randall Diveney has a rap sheet that must be a mile long. He was arrested for the murder of Mrs. Futrell after DNA under her fingernails pointed to the guy she was kind to and cooked meals for. According to LE this nice woman was speaking to Diveney about his past and he snapped.

    The Florida Supreme Court has thrown out the conviction and death sentence of Randall Deviney, saying Jacksonville police who questioned him in a 65-year-old woman’s slaying did not honor his constitutional right to remain silent.

    Deviney, 23, was convicted of slitting the throat of Dolores Futrell in August 2008 with a fish filleting knife in her Westside home on Bennington Drive.

    He was sentenced to death by Circuit Judge Mallory Cooper in 2010 after the jury that convicted him recommended death by a 10-2 vote.
    Deviney now claims to have inside info on another murder, but says he will only talk if the death penalty is off the table for his retrial:

    Deviney, accused in the brutal murder of Delores Futrell in 2008, claims to have information that Donald Smith, accused of kidnapping, raping and murdering 8-year-old Cherish Perrywinkle, committed a prior rape and murder years before Cherish's death...

    “The road to justice has been a long one for the families of Delores Futrell and Cherish Perrywinkle,” the State Attorney's Office said in a statement Tuesday. “Our hope is to get these cases before a jury as soon as possible.”

    From October:

    It was a new day but the same result for Randall Deviney Wednesday when he was sentenced to Florida’s Death Row for the first-degree murder of Delores Futrell...

    In the second trial prosecutors got another conviction, and the jury recommended Deviney be executed by an 8-4 vote. The jury also made additional findings that the murder was premeditated and occurred during a burglary and an attempted sexual battery.

    The sentence has been overturned, looks like back to life in prison. http://www.wokv.com/news/local/jacks...w5vgitfVe8KaK/

    Randall Deviney was convicted of first degree and a jury recommended death by an 8-to-4 vote, which was accepted by the court. But last year, the U.S. Supreme Court found the Florida’s death penalty sentencing procedure to be unconstitutional because a recommendation did not require a unanimous jury.
