Decade-old death sentence overturned; judge rules man didn't receive fair trial

-A A +A

Juror favored 'eye for an eye' death penalty in murderer's conviction

By Danna Zabrovsky

More than 10 years after an Oldham County jury convicted a man of murdering his former in-laws, a circuit court judge reversed his death sentence Monday because he was denied the right to a fair trial.
The court found that two jurors who served in the capital case of Miguel Soto in 2000 had been ineligible to sit on the jury.
Soto was convicted on two counts first-degree murder for the shooting deaths of his ex-wife’s parents, Armott and Edna Porter, on June 29, 1999, at the Porters’ Crestwood home.
