US v. Torres, 141

Affirming the conviction and sentence of death in a first-degree murder case because the sentence's inclusion of prior offenses as aggravating factors in sentencing was not unconstitutional and the admission of various forms of evidence at trial were not in error and the use of post-offense conduct in determining eligibility for the death penalty was not a violation of the Eighth Amendment.
