Supreme Court Upholds Death Penalty for Carr Brothers, Sidney Gleason

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — The U.S. Supreme Court ruling in the death penalty sentences for three Kansas men sends their cases back to the state's highest court. The justices ruled Wednesday that the Kansas Supreme Court was wrong to overturn the sentences of Jonathan and Reginald Carr, and Sidney Gleason in a separate case. The Carr brothers killed four people and wounded a fifth in 2000 in Wichita. Gleason killed two people in 2004 in Great Bend. The Kansas attorney general's office says the Kansas Supreme Court will determine whether additional proceedings are necessary. Sedgwick County District Attorney Marc Bennett says it would have been difficult for the victims' families to go through a new sentencing. But Gleason and Jonathan Carr's attorney, Sarah Johnson, says there are "definitely some issues" that remain to be addressed.
