By FindLaw Staff on November 04, 2009 2:10 PM

District court's conviction of defendant for aggravated robbery and aggravated murder and sentence of death is affirmed in part as to the conviction, but reversed in part as to the sentence where petitioner's trial attorney did not provide his client with effective assistance of counsel during the penalty phase of a second trial, specifically, by failing to meaningfully investigate and to present any mitigation evidence.
