    Memphis area death row inmates lose bids to reopen case

    Efforts by two death row inmates to reopen their cases that have been on appeal for years were rejected Monday by a judge.

    David Keen, 48, of Millington, who admitted strangling and raping 8-year-old Ashley Nicole ‘Nikki’ Read in 1990, contended through attorneys that he was intellectually disabled and thus ineligible for the death penalty.

    Charles Rice, 46, of Memphis, who was convicted of the 2000 rape and murder of his 13-year-old stepdaughter Emily Branch, argued that his lawyers were ineffective.

    Criminal Court Judge Chris Craft ruled in lengthy opinions that those and other issues raised by the inmates are without merit.

    No execution dates are set.

    Millington death row inmate loses bid to reopen appeals

    A death row inmate from Millington does not get to reopen his appeals process by claiming mental retardation 19 years after his conviction of raping and murdering an 8-year-old girl, the Tennessee Supreme Court said Thursday.

    David M. Keen, 50, was sentenced to death for the 1990 attack on 8-year-old Ashley Nicole 'Nikki' Read, whose body was found wrapped in a blanket and floating in the Wolf River near the boat ramp at the north end of Mud Island.

    Two years ago defense attorneys sought to overturn his sentence, claiming for the first time that newly obtained IQ scores showed Keen was intellectually disabled and thus ineligible for the death penalty.

    The claim was rejected by the trial court and by the Court of Criminal Appeals, findings upheld by the state Supreme Court that ruled that a defendant must present scientific evidence of actual innocence to reopen post-conviction proceedings.

    "Here, Mr. Keen pleaded guilty to rape and the first-degree murder of Nikki Read," the high court ruled. "Intellectual disability does not equate to actual innocence."

    Keen was sentenced to death in 1991, but the Tennessee Supreme Court overturned the sentence because it said jurors had been given outdated jury instructions. He received a new sentencing hearing in 1997 and again was sentenced to death.

    He admitted strangling the young daughter of his girlfriend and disposing of her body. Keen then played bingo, slept and later joined a search party looking for Nikki Read before finally confessing and leading police to her body.

    On June 4, 2015, Keen filed an appeal before the US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit over the presumable denial of his habeas petition in Federal District Court.
