High court to review Kansas sheriff's killing

•  National News     updated  2013/02/27 00:11


The Supreme Court has agreed to consider reinstating the conviction and death sentence of a man who said he was high on meth when he killed a Kansas sheriff.

The justices on Monday said they will review a state Supreme Court ruling that granted a new trial to Scott Cheever, who admitted to shooting Greenwood County Sheriff Matt Samuels.

The Kansas court said Cheever's rights were violated during his trial because a psychiatrist was allowed to testify about Cheever's psychological records without his consent.

Samuels' death prompted changes in the Kansas criminal code to make it more difficult to purchase the ingredients used in making meth.

The case will be argued in the fall.
