    Dustin John Higgs - Federal Death Row

    Summary of Offense:

    Higgs was convicted in October 2000 of ordering the murder of three Maryland women after arguing with one of them in his apartment. Tanji Jackson, 21, Tamika Black, 19, and Mishann Chinn, 23, were shot to death at close range January 27, 1996, on federal land in Prince George's County by Willis Mark Haynes, who acted at Higgs' direction. Haynes was convicted in May 2000 and sentenced to life plus 45 years in prison. Higgs's case is the third death penalty prosecution in Maryland since the federal death penalty was reinstated in 1988, but marks the first time a jury has imposed the death penalty.

    UNITED STATES OF AMERICA v DUSTIN JOHN HIGGS

    In today's Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals opinions, the court AFFIRMED the district court’s order DENYING Higgs’s motion under 28 U.S.C. 2255.

    Petitioner was convicted of three counts each of first degree premeditated murder, first degree murder committed in the perpetration or attempted perpetration of a kidnapping, and kidnapping resulting in death. The court granted a certificate of appealability to consider petitioner's claim that his constitutional rights to due process of law and effective assistance of counsel were violated by the introduction of Comparative Bullet Lead Analysis (CBLA). The court held that there was no reasonable probability that the district court would have excluded the CBLA testimony at petitioner's trial had it been challenged, or that the outcome of the guilt or sentencing phase would have been different had the CBLA evidence been excluded or subject to additional cross-examination. The court also held that petitioner failed to demonstrate that defense counsel was constitutionally ineffective for failing to file a motion for a new trial based upon the post-trial studies. Accordingly, the court affirmed the district court's order denying petitioner's motion under 28 U.S.C. 2255.

    In today's US Supreme Court orders, Higgs' petition for certiorari was DENIED.

    Theoretically, Higgs' appeals are now exhausted. Unfortunately, litigation over the federal government's lethal-injection protocol has continued to be bogged down in the District of Columbia District Court since 2006.
