A convicted murderer who is spending life in prison without parole, will be resentenced.
Ledale Nathan was 16-years-old when he was tried as an adult for the 2009 murder of Gina Stallis. Nathan was convicted on 26 charges including first-degree murder. Nathan's lawyers filed an appeal saying the state did not prove first-degree murder. The appeal also said his age should have factored into the sentencing.
The State Supreme Court is upholding the convictions but sending the case back to lower courts for resentencing. The high court says the punishment is a violation of Nathan's Eighth Amendment rights.
