State v. Murdaugh

In State v. Murdaugh, 209 Ariz. 19, 209 Ariz. 19, 97 P.3d 844 (2004), the defendant attempted to have his guilty plea vacated because he had not been aware he had a right to have a jury decide whether he should be sentenced to death. The court found the defendant had not established that the identity of the sentencing decision maker had had any effect on his decision to plead guilty. Id. P47.
