The Kansas Supreme Court on Friday overturned death sentences for Jonathan and Reginald Carr, brothers convicted of murdering five people in one of Wichitas most notorious crime sprees.
The states high court in separate rulings issued Friday unanimously struck down three of each mans four capital murder convictions in the Dec. 15, 2000, execution-style killings of four people in a snow-covered soccer field. A remaining capital murder conviction for each man was upheld by the court, but the death sentence connected to it was vacated after a 6-1 majority said the district court judge who presided over the brothers trial the late Paul W. Clark was in error when he refused to hold separate sentencing proceedings for the men.
Justice Nancy Mortiz disagreed with the decision, saying that separate hearings would not have influenced the outcome because witness testimony, the unusually egregious facts of the case and evidence against the Carr brothers was so strong...

Do you finally, at long last, understand that your Owners are mocking you daily, peasants?
If peasants want justice in this country, work to spring the perps yourselves.
Then they can just disappear...
As we say around here, “There is no law West of the Kaw”
The clown “judges” are going to keep this crap up and it won’t be long before Americans start dealing out “justice” to these animals.
Aren’t these the same scumbags that made the brother/sister have relations with one another before murdering them?
As long as the brothers continue to be behind bars forever, the liberal hand-wringing to excuse black-on-white hate crimes just wastes more taxpayer money.
Wouldn’t that be “south of the Kaw”? I’m just saying...
This was another horrific crime the media covered up. Here’s another...
the mugshots of these two arrogant pukes...made it all too apparent that they were SURE they would never face ole Sparky!!
Try posting in English next time...
well, I don’t think so, I am in Kansas City
I watched this trial on CourtTV. I’ll never forget it.
These monsters tortured the victims before killing them one by one, in front of each other.
The victims were sodomized so forcefully, they had deep rug burns on their knees.
After slaughtering these kids, they went back to the home of one of the victims and tortured and slaughtered the family dog.
The prosecutor cried when describing the crime.
The judges, that is.
Leftists want us all dead - anyone who threatens normal Americans is their ally.
Okay, but Wichita is south of the Kaw. The Kaw runs east-west. Wichita is in the county next to the “s” in “Arkansas” (Arkansas River) on this map:
Isn’t that way down south of the Kaw?
I bet Hillary! would have gotten them off in the first place........and then laughed about it.
Jonathan Carr, now 34, and Reginald Carr, 36, were in their 20s when the crimes occurred.
On Dec. 7, The Carr brothers car-jacked Andrew Schreiber, a former Wichita State baseball player and honor student. He was forced at gunpoint to drive around east Wichita, withdrawing money from ATMs before being released unharmed. His captors fired a bullet into his car tire.
On Dec. 11, Ann Walenta, a cellist with the Wichita Symphony, was critically shot during a carjacking attempt. She died of her wounds on Jan. 2, 2001.
The brothers were convicted in 2002 of terrorizing, robbing, sexually assaulting, kidnapping and murdering a group of young people on Dec. 15, 2000, as part of a seven-day crime spree across Wichita.
Jason Befort, 26, Brad Heyka, 27, Aaron Sander, 29, and Heather Muller, 25, were killed in an execution-style shooting after being forced to kneel in a frozen soccer field at 29th Street North and Greenwich.
A fifth victim, a 25-year-old woman who was shot in the back of the head and left for dead, survived and ran naked through the snow to a nearby house for help. Her escape tipped off a manhunt for the killers, who were arrested later that day. She later became a key witness at the brothers trial.
Just your average ‘sons of Obama’
