Derrick Todd Lee Seeks New Trialon April 20, 2011 in Serial Killers by Brian Combs
Attorneys for Derrick Todd Lee claim he should be retried for the 2004 conviction in the murder of Charlotte Murray Pace in 2002. Gary Clements of the Capital Post-Conviction Project of Louisiana says that Lee’s court appointed trial lawyers were underfunded and ineffective.
Clements’ 274-page petition also accuses prosecutors of misconduct, saying they challenged qualified prospective black jurors improperly.
Lee is on death row for the murder.
