      Carolyn King PA DR Death Sentence Tossed in 1993 Murder

      The state Supreme Court has stayed the executions of a Lebanon County couple convicted of killing a retired Palmyra florist in 1993 and setting off on a cross-country rampage.


      Carolyn Ann King, 34, was scheduled to die by lethal injection March 29. Bradley Martin, 27, was scheduled to die a day later.


      The court halted the executions Monday to give the two time to appeal their convictions. The U.S. Supreme Court rejected the second round of appeals on Jan. 18.

      Woman convicted in 1993 Palmyra murder to get new penalty hearing

      Carolyn King, convicted along with Bradley Martin in the 1993 murder of Palmyra florist Guy Goodman, should get a new penalty hearing, a Pike County judge appointed to hear the case ruled recently.

      Judge Harold A. Thomson Jr. said a new penalty hearing should be held to consider mitigating evidence regarding past abuse and mental disorders that was not presented at King's sentencing hearing in 1994. He said her attorney, M. Jannifer Weiss, testified she didn’t have time to investigate the issues because the penalty phase began immediately after the verdict and that she didn’t feel testimony on the matters would have helped her defense.

      Thomson rejected King’s claims that she should get a new trial because Weiss didn’t have sufficient criminal trial experience, among a dozen other reasons.


      In 1994 King and Martin were convicted of the murder of Goodman, whom they bound and left to suffocate with a bag taped over his head in the basement of his home. Both appealed their death sentences, and Martin’s was overturned in 2004. They also received life sentences in the shooting death of a North Dakota woman they abducted after Goodman’s murder.

      Pennsylvania v. King

      Court: Pennsylvania Supreme Court

      Opinion date: November 26, 2012


      In this capital post-conviction matter, Carolyn Ann King appealed an order denying guilt-phase relief but granting a new sentencing hearing. In 1993, Appellant's co-defendant Bradley Martin received a prison visitation pass that allowed him to leave the Lebanon County prison where he was incarcerated. He met Appellant, with whom he was romantically involved, and failed to return to prison as required. Instead, the two traveled to Palmyra, where they visited Guy Goodman, with whom Martin was acquainted. After arriving at Goodman's home, Martin struck Goodman over the head with a vase, and the pair disabled Goodman by tightly binding his wrists, ankles, and neck. They then placed various wrappings around his head, sealing them with duct tape. Finally, they carried Goodman into the basement, tying him even more securely and wrapping him in a bedspread, and then leaving him to suffocate while they stole his checkbook and credit card and fled in his car. During their flight, Appellant and Martin used Goodman's credit card and checks to pay their expenses. Martin and Appellant were eventually apprehended in Arizona. In 2000, Appellant filed a timely, pro se petition under the Post Conviction Relief Act (PCRA). Thereafter, she was given permission to file a counseled, amended petition, and her execution was stayed pending final resolution of her claims. New counsel for Appellant filed amended and supplemental petitions, raising numerous claims for collateral relief predicated on trial counsel's alleged ineffectiveness. The PCRA court ultimately denied Appellant's request for a new trial, finding all her guilt-phase claims meritless. It did grant Appellant a new penalty hearing based on its determination that her trial counsel had rendered ineffective assistance by failing to investigate and present any mental-health mitigating evidence. Upon review, the Supreme Court concluded that because none of the issues Appellant raised on appeal entitled her to a new trial, the order of the Court of Common Pleas was affirmed.

      DA to continue seeking death penalty for convicted murderer Martin

      Lebanon County District Attorney David Arnold says he will continue to seek the death penalty in the cases of Bradley Martin and Carolyn King, who were sentenced to death for the 1993 murder of a Palmyra florist.

      Pennsylvania Supreme Court denied Martin and King new trials but ordered new sentencing hearings.

      Martin and King were convicted of 1st-degree murder in 1994 for the death of 74-year-old Guy Goodman in his Palmyra townhouse.

      Arnold and Chief Public Defender Brian Deiderick met with Senior Judge Robert Eby last week to set up a schedule for Martin's case, which will be handled first.

      Defense expert reports are due Nov. 15, with the prosecution's expert reports to follow at a later date.

      Arnold said he anticipates Martin's sentencing hearing to be scheduled in late spring or early summer 2014.

      "Both Bradley Martin and Carolyn King were sentenced to death by a jury of their peers," Arnold wrote in an email. "The prosecutors who handled the case, as well as the victim's family believe we should continue to seek the death penalty. I believe I have an obligation to continue to pursue the death penalty against both of these convicted murderers."

      In June, Deiderick told Lebanon County commissioners that Martin was willing to agree to a life sentence without parole. That would eliminate the need for a sentencing hearing.

      The sentencing hearings are expected to cost the county thousands of dollars in legal expenses. In June, Lebanon County commissioners approved the use of TempForce to make copies of thousands of pages of legal documents associated with Martin's case.

      Martin was 22 at the time of the murder; King was 28. Martin, who had been incarcerated on a parole violation, was free on a 2-hour pass from Lebanon County prison when he and King traveled to Goodman's home on Sept. 15, 1993. Goodman had visited Martin and written to him while Martin was in prison. Martin struck Goodman over the head with a vase and the couple duct-taped a plastic bag over his head. Goodman's body was found by police 10 days later.

      Martin and King then stole Goodman's car, credit card and check book and drove to Bismarck, N.D., where they abducted and later killed a 59-year-old woman. They were arrested in Arizona after a police chase on Oct. 5, 1993.

      The pair pleaded guilty to 1st-degree murder in the death of Donna Martz and were sentenced to life in prison in Nevada.

      Death row inmate Carolyn King will receive another sentencing hearing sometime.

      There's no rush though.

      Senior Judge David Grine from Centre County came to Lebanon Monday morning for what turned out to be a five-minute status conference on King's case.

      After hearing from Lebanon County District Attorney David Arnold and King's counsel, Harrisburg attorney Thomas Schmidt, during a status conference Monday, Grine asked Schmidt to review records of the two-decades-old case and attempt to obtain any documents he needs prior to the first week in October.

      Grine requested that a date for a scheduling hearing be set by Lebanon County Court Administration for the first or second week in October.

      King and her co-conspirator, Bradley Martin, were convicted of first-degree murder in 1994 for the death of 74-year-old Palmyra florist Guy Goodman in his Palmyra townhouse in 1993.

      The Pennsylvania Supreme Court denied Martin and King new trials but ordered new sentencing hearings.

      Arnold is continuing to pursue the death penalty in both cases, at the request of Goodman's family.

      King's case is expected to be heard after Martin's sentencing. No date has been set for that hearing.

      Martin was 22 at the time of the murder; King was 28. Martin, who had been incarcerated on a parole violation, was free on a two-hour pass from Lebanon County prison when he and King traveled to Goodman's home on Sept. 15, 1993.

      New sentencing hearing awaits for convicted killer Bradley Martin

      Convicted in the death of Palmyra florist Guy Goodman in 1993, Bradley Martin will have a sentencing hearing in 2015

      By Steve Snyder

      Bradley Martin will have to wait until next year for his new sentencing hearing.

      Martin, 43, was convicted of first-degree murder in 1994 for the death of 74-year-old florist Guy Goodman in his Palmyra townhouse in 1993.

      The Pennsylvania Supreme Court denied a new trial for Martin and his co-conspirator, Carolyn King, but ordered new sentencing hearings for both.

      Lebanon County District Attorney David Arnold and Chief Public Defender Brian Deiderick met with Senior Judge Robert Eby earlier this week to discuss a timeline for Martin's hearing. Arnold said the target is late spring 2015.

      King's hearing will follow that of Martin. A status conference for King was held May 12, and a scheduling hearing will be set for the first or second week of October.

      Arnold is continuing to pursue the death penalty in both cases, at the request of Goodman's family. Martin is willing to plead guilty to a sentence of life in prison, Deiderick said.

      Martin was 22 at the time of the murder; King was 28. Martin, who had been incarcerated on a parole violation, was free on a two-hour pass from the Lebanon County prison when he and King traveled to Goodman's home on Sept. 15, 1993. Goodman had visited Martin and written to him while Martin was in prison.

      Carolyn King resentenced to life term for 1993 Palmyra murder

      There are some things Judy Goodman will never know about her father's murder more than 20 years ago.

      On Tuesday, she had hoped to hear why Carolyn King and Bradley Martin killed 74-year-old Guy Goodman in his Palmyra townhouse.

      Judy Goodman sat and listened Tuesday afternoon as King, sentenced in 1994 to die for the murder, was resentenced by Senior Judge David Grine from Centre County to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

      She heard no explanation from King, who took part in the hearing by way of a video hookup from the State Correctional Institution at Muncy in Lycoming County.

      "I wish she would have made a comment," Goodman said afterwards.

      She said she hoped King, now 49 years old, would have said why her father was killed.

      "We'll never know why," Goodman said.

      King and Martin were convicted Oct. 14, 1994, of first-degree murder and other offenses and sentenced to die.

      After years of appeals, the state Supreme Court denied them a new trial but ordered new sentencing hearings for both of them.

      In December, Lebanon County Senior Judge Robert J. Eby, who had presided at the 1994 murder trial, ruled that the prosecution could not seek the death penalty against Martin, who is now 42 years old. The judge said in his ruling that Martin had been offered a plea agreement as part of a package deal with King before their trial.

      King refused to plead guilty; the two went to trial and were convicted of first-degree murder for killing Goodman on Sept. 15, 1993.

      The district attorney at the time of their 1994 trial, Bradford Charles, required Martin and King to both plead guilty in order to receive a life sentence.

      A package plea offer was made to Martin and King on Feb. 7, 1994, and was available to them when their trial began on Sept. 30, 1994.

      Eby, in his December ruling, said King had a pen to sign the agreement but changed her mind at the last minute.

      "After careful and deliberate consideration of what we believe to be a case of first impression in this Commonwealth, we find that the proffered agreement as to (Martin), who was prevented from accepting its terms solely on the basis of a whim of his co-defendant, does indeed violate the protections of Due Process afforded by the United States and Pennsylvania Constitutions," Eby wrote in his December ruling.

      District Attorney David Arnold did not appeal Eby's ruling.

      Martin was resentenced on Jan. 26 to life in prison without parole.

      That set the stage for King's resentencing and again the district attorney decided not to fight what he considered to be the inevitable conclusion of the two-decades old case.

      On Tuesday, Arnold told Grine that he believed King and Martin should have been executed 20 years ago but the political climate over the death penalty and Gov. Tom Wolf's decision to place a moratorium on executions in Pennsylvania took that option off the table.

      Arnold said there is no doubt that King and Martin are guilty of homicide for the brutal killing of Goodman "for absolutely no reason whatsoever."

      "There's no doubt the defendant is guilty of homicide. She flat out admitted it," Arnold said about King.

      He said it was in the best interests of the prosecution and Goodman's family to resentence King to life in prison.

      Defense attorney Michael Wiseman said if the sentencing phase had gone before a jury, the public would have learned that King had been a victim in her own life as a child and a young woman, without providing details.

      Earlier appeals filed on behalf of King stated she had been the victim of sexual abuse and domestic violence, and had suffered from depression and drug abuse.

      King had nothing to say before she was sentenced to life behind bars.

      Michael Wahmann, the county detective who was a lead investigator in the Goodman murder case, said after Tuesday's hearing that he still believed King should have received the death penalty.

      "If there was ever a person who deserved it, it was Carolyn King," he said.

      As part of the agreement sentencing her to life in prison, King gave up her right to file any future appeals in state or federal courts.

      Martin was 22 at the time of the murder; King was 28. Martin, who had been incarcerated on a parole violation, was free on a two-hour pass from the Lebanon County prison when he and King traveled to Goodman's home on Sept. 15, 1993. Goodman had visited Martin and written to him while Martin was in prison.

      Martin struck Goodman over the head with a vase, and the couple duct-taped a plastic bag over his head. Goodman's body was found by police 10 days later.

      Martin and King stole Goodman's car, credit card and checkbook and drove to Bismarck, N.D., where they abducted a 59-year-old woman, Donna Martz, later killing her in the Nevada desert. They were arrested in Arizona after a police chase on Oct. 5, 1993.

      Martin and King pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in the death of Martz and were sentenced to life in prison in Nevada. The Nevada sentence is consecutive to the sentence for the Goodman murder.
