Attorneys for Lotter argue that he had a right to have jurors, not judges, weigh his fate when he was sentenced to death in 1996. The attorneys cite a U.S. Supreme Court ruling last year that struck down Florida’s death penalty process, saying it gave too much power to judges to make the ultimate decision. After that ruling, Delaware’s high court followed suit and threw out that state’s death penalty-determining method. (Eric Keith/The St. Joseph News-Press via AP, File)
