    Maria Del Rosio Alfaro - California Death Row


    Autumn Wallace, 9




    Summary of Offense:

    In July 1992, Maria del Rosio "Rosie" Alfaro became the first woman sentenced to death in Orange County, when she was condemned for stabbing to death nine-year-old Autumn Wallace, more than 50 times during a June 15, 1990 burglary in Anaheim to get money for drugs. Autumn was home alone cutting out paper dolls when she heard the knock on the door and saw Alfaro, an acquaintance of her older sister's. In an interview years later, Alfaro said she had to kill Autumn because the girl knew who she was. Linda Wallace, Autumn's mother, found her daughter's body hours later in a pool of blood in the bathroom. Alfaro remains on death row as her case is being appealed in the federal court system.

    Alfaro death penalty affirmed

    It took 15 years, but the Wallace family today finally received the news they have been waiting for.

    The California Supreme Court unanimously affirmed the the death sentence given in 1992 to an Anaheim woman who killed 9-year-old girl Autumn Wallace in 1990 during a burglary.

    Appeals for Maria del Rosio “Rosie” Alfaro, now 35, who was first woman in Orange County to get the death penalty, will now enter the federal court system. And that process, too, can take years to come to a conclusion.

    Alfaro was a high school friend of Autumn’s older sister who talked the little girl — who was home alone — into opening her door on June 15, 1990. Alfaro later admitted killing the little girl to eliminate a witness. Autumn was stabbed 57 times and her body was found in a pool of blood by her mother Linda when she returned home from work.

    Does this mean she just serves life? I know this judge finds California’s death penalty as unconstitutional and they haven't executed since 2006, but if they started again has she been given life and off death row having a better life in with the general cons?

    That's the same judge who said California's death penalty was illegal last year. He's pretty clearly fighting his own crusade against the death penalty.

    Death penalty reinstated for woman who fatally stabbed Orange County girl in 1990

    A federal appeals court Friday reinstated a death sentence for Maria Del Rosio Alfaro, convicted of murdering a 9-year-old Orange County girl a quarter-century ago .

    Alfaro was sentenced to death in 1992 for fatally stabbing Autumn Wallace during a burglary and robbery of her family’s home in Anaheim Hills in 1990. Wallace, home alone after school, let Alfaro in the house because she recognized her as an acquaintance of her older sister.

    Alfaro was 18 at the time and a drug addict. She had four children when she was sentenced to death at age 20. She was convicted of stabbing Wallace more than 50 times.

    U.S. District Judge Cormac Carney overturned Alfaro’s death sentence on the grounds that delays in California’s capital punishment system produced arbitrary results in violation of the U.S. Constitution.

    But a three-judge panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals said Friday that Alfaro should have raised that claim first in state court.

    In a similar case in 2015, a different 9th Circuit panel reinstated a death sentence for Ernest Dewayne Jones. Carney overturned Jones’ sentence on the same grounds he had overturned Alfaro’s.

    The majority in the Jones case ruled that that federal judges may not consider new constitutional theories in cases of habeas corpus, the legal means prisoners use to challenge their confinement.

    The panel that reinstated Alfaro’s sentence said the Jones ruling had been undermined by subsequent U.S. Supreme Court decisions.
