US v. Caro, 07-5

Conviction of defendant for first degree murder of an inmate and sentence to death under the Federal Death Penalty Act is affirmed and defendant's various challenges rejected where: 1) while several possible errors are recognized, they were not widespread or prejudicial enough to have fatally infected defendant's trial or sentencing hearing; 2) the proceeding adhered to fundamental fairness; 3) each aggravating factor determined by the jury was well supported by the record; and 4) cumulative error could not have caused the jury to weigh the sentencing factors any differently.
