    Federal Judge Upholds Conviction for Danny Lee Fed DR in 1996 Triple Murder

    A federal judge has declined to grant new trials to a pair of white supremacists found guilty of the 1996 robbery and murders of an Arkansas family. U.S. District Judge G. Thomas Eisele issued two opinions Thursday rejecting post-conviction relief for convicted murderers Chevie Kehoe and Danny Lee.

    Kehoe's argument for a new trial included, among other claims, ineffective assistance of counsel and denial of his constitutional rights. Lee had argued for a new trial because he claimed that the death penalty was applied in error and because of newly discovered evidence.

    After a two-month trial, Lee and Kehoe were convicted in May 1999 of capital murder, racketeering and conspiracy. Prosecutors said they planned to overthrow the federal government and set up a whites-only nation in the Pacific Northwest.

    The two were found guilty of the murders of Tilly gun dealer William Mueller, his wife Nancy, and her 8-year-old daughter, Sarah Powell. Their bodies were found in a backwater of Illinois Bayou north of Russellville.

    Lee, of Yukon, Okla., was sentenced to death; Kehoe, of Colville, Wash., the alleged ring leader, was given a life sentence.

    On February 17, 2011, Lee filed an appeal in the US Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals over the denial in Federal District Court of his motion for post-conviction relief.

    Court rejects appeal in Arkansas triple killing

    A federal appeals court has rejected an appeal from a white supremacist who challenged his murder conviction after his defense attorneys tried to pick a jury with as many black members as possible.

    Chevie Kehoe was sentenced to life in prison for the 1996 killings of an Arkansas family. His accomplice received a death sentence.

    Kehoe argues that he received ineffectual counsel because of his attorneys' jury-selection strategy. The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed Kehoe's conviction Monday.

    The opinion says Kehoe's attorneys made a "strategic decision" to pick black jurors because the attorneys thought black jurors would be less likely than whites to impose the death penalty.

    The 8th Circuit says that although the attorneys' strategy may have been "misguided," it's not enough to throw out Kehoe's conviction.

    Appeals court affirms execution for Daniel Lee in overthrow plot

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - An appeals panel has upheld the federal death penalty for one of two men convicted in the slaying of an Arkansas family as part of a plot to create a whites-only nation in the Pacific Northwest.

    Daniel Lee was sentenced to execution for the 1996 robbery and murder of a husband, wife and their 8-year-old daughter in the town of Tilly. The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Monday upheld Lee's sentence and conviction, even though co-defendant Chevie Kehoe was sentenced to life in prison.

    Lee claimed on appeal that his lawyer was ineffective as jurors were being chosen and that the sentence was unconstitutional.

    The three-judge appeals panel found that Lee didn't demonstrate problems with jury selection and that jurors properly considered factors leading to his death sentence.

    In case you are wondering what is delaying the setting of an execution date for this killer, look no further than the DOJ, the Federal Judiciary, and a quagmire of judicial procedural laws enacted by Congress.

    Following the Eighth Circuit's opinion on April 29, 2013, the defendant filed a motion for an extension of time to file a Petition For Reheraing.

    The DOJ did not oppose the motion. The court allowed the motion (as revised) to extend the time for filing a Petition For Rehearing until September 27, 2013. Assuming no further extensions are granted, and assuming the petition is filed, the government will respond to the petition. Then the court will sit on the petition and response for a while, and will eventually rule. Then additional appeals will follow. We, the taxpayers, get to pay for all of this.

    What a ridiculous use of our tax dollars and time resources. Maybe we should start a pool to pick the date on which the defendant is finally executed. The only problem is how to determine a winner when the answer is "never."

    Man convicted in Ark. family's death gets hearing

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A hearing has been scheduled for an Oklahoma man on federal death row for the 1996 slaying of an Arkansas family as part of a conspiracy to create a whites-only nation in the Pacific Northwest.

    Danny Lee of Yukon, Okla., was convicted of murder in aid of racketeering and was sentenced to death. His attorneys are challenging evidence presented during sentencing that suggested Lee was a psychopath and dangerous to others.

    Prosecutors accused Lee and Chevie Kehoe of killing a Pope County gun dealer, his wife and 8-year-old daughter. Prosecutors alleged the men wanted to steal the dealer's guns to start an army and establish a white supremacist nation.

    The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/1lYMPYo) a Jan. 31 hearing is set on Lee's request to have his death sentenced overturned.

    Death row inmate asks for hearing in Ark. case

    A lawyer for an Oklahoma man sentenced to die for the slayings of three members of an Arkansas family asked a federal judge Friday to grant a hearing on whether his death sentence should be overturned.

    Danny Lee, 45, of Yukon, Okla., was convicted along with Chevie Kehoe in the 1996 slayings of gun dealer William Mueller, his wife, Nancy Mueller, and their young daughter, Sarah. Prosecutors portrayed Kehoe as the leader of the operation, though jurors gave Kehoe a sentence of only life in prison.

    Kehoe and Lee robbed the Muellers of firearms and $50,000 in cash to further a scheme to create a white supremacist nation in the Pacific Northwest.

    Karl Schwartz, an assistant public defender, argued at a hearing in Little Rock that the judge should order a hearing on whether to reopen Lees case because Lees trial and prior appellate lawyers failed to raise a key issue regarding Lees mental health.

    The judge will issue a ruling later.

    Prosecutors introduced evidence at trial that involved the use of a test that determined that Lee was a psychopath and would pose a future danger, even if imprisoned. Schwartz said the test has since been thoroughly discredited by the scientific community and that information was available during the trial that Lees lawyers could have used to challenge the test.

    Since then, Schwartz said other lawyers failed to raise the issue on appeal. He urged U.S. District Judge J. Leon Holmes to allow a hearing, arguing that Lee is the only person on federal death row who was convicted with the test in question used as evidence.

    John M. Pellettieri, an attorney with the Justice Department, didnt dispute that the test had been discredited but said Lee didnt have an appropriate legal mechanism to reopen his case. He also said Lee wasnt harmed by being tagged as a psychopath because there was other evidence that went against him, including having an alleged role in a separate slaying and an incident in which he threatened a jail guard.

    Schwartz said the law allows Holmes to rule for Lee as a way to address the issue because it cuts to the integrity of the earlier proceedings.

    Lee and Kehoe were tried together but after jurors sentenced Kehoe to life, then-U.S. Attorney Paula Casey wanted to take the death penalty off the table for Lee. But she couldnt get clearance to do so from the Justice Department. The trial judge later overturned Lees death sentence, but that ruling was reversed by the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis.

    Holmes gave the sides time to submit further written arguments and did not indicate when he would rule.

    I dont want to cut anybody off in this case. Its a death case, Holmes said.

    Lee was not present for the proceeding, but court officials said hed be summoned from prison if Holmes reopens the case.

    US judge denies new hearing in Arkansas slayings

    A federal judge has rejected a request for a new hearing for an Oklahoma man on federal death row for the slayings of an Arkansas family.

    U.S. District Judge Leon Holmes ruled Tuesday that Danny Lee of Yukon, Okla., needed to obtain authorization from the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to file another petition challenging his death sentence.

    Lee was convicted in federal court in the 1996 slayings of gun dealer William Mueller, his wife, Nancy Mueller, and their young daughter, Sarah. Prosecutors alleged that Lee and Chevie Kehoe wanted to steal the dealer's guns to start an army and establish a white supremacist nation in the Pacific Northwest.

    Lee's attorneys wanted Lee's case reopened so they could challenge tests presented at trial that suggested Lee was a psychopath.
