111589 Dobbs v. Commonwealth 02/02/2012 A divided Court of Appeals affirmed the Circuit Court's judgment affirming the defendant's convictions for first-degree murder and especially aggravated battery and vacating his life sentences. The decision is affirmed, but the case is remanded to the Circuit Court with direction to hold a new sentencing hearing. The record reflects that the trial court erred in finding that the defendant could not be sentenced as a multiple offender, the defendant was denied the effective assistance of counsel, and the prosecutor engaged in misconduct. See Record No. 084826, Dobbs v. Commonwealth, June 26, 2009. The defendant raises various challenges on appeal, including the rejection of his claims for relief from judgment. The Court affirms the Circuit Court's judgment as to the convictions and vacates the sentences of life imprisonment. The Court remands the case for a new sentencing hearing. See Record No. 084826, Dobbs v. Commonwealth, June 26, 2009
111076 In the review of a death sentence imposed by a jury in a capital sentencing proceeding after a prior appeal upheld two capital murder convictions, the circuit court did not err in sentencing the defendant to death in accordance with the jury's verdict. Various issues, including the use of expert and victim impact testimony in sentencing, use of prior unadjudicated acts proof in sentencing, and whether the trial court erred in denying the defendant's motion seeking recusal of the trial judge on remand, as well as his motion seeking information regarding the composition of the grand jury, are considered. No reason is found to commute or set aside the death sentence.
