Supreme Court of California

People v. Nelson, 048763

Death sentence for the first degree murder of two of defendant's former colleagues in a Target parking lot is reversed and remanded for a new penalty phase trial where the trial judge's intrusive intervention into the jury's deliberations and individual juror's mental processes upon receiving notice of an impasse violated defendant's right to trial by an impartial jury.
