      Joseph Weldon Smith - Nevada Death Row


      Joseph Weldon Smith


      Summary of Offense:

      Sentenced to death in April 1996 for the strangulation and hammer slaying of his two stepdaughters, Wendy J. Cox, 20, and Kristy Cox, 12, in their Green Valley home in October 1990. Smith was originally convicted of killing his two stepdaughters and his wife Judith Smith, 47. He was sentenced to life in prison for the killing of his wife and given the death penalty for the murders of his two stepdaughters. The Supreme Court ordered Smith's sentence for the murder of Kristy Cox be reduced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. But the death penalty still stands for the murder of Wendy Cox.
