William Glenn Rogers' death sentence overturned
The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on August 3 overturned Rogers' death sentence. His convictions stand, but the case will head back in Montgomery County to the trial court level for a new sentencing phase. William Glenn Rogers, 60, White, was convicted of the July 8, 1996 rape and murder of a 9-year-old girl, Jacqueline Beard. In 2000 a jury sentenced him to death for murder. He was additionally sentenced to 48 years in prison for the kidnaping and rape. In his most recent appeal, he raised claims for relief around possible ineffective assistance of counsel at multiple stages in his case as well as questions about the sufficiency of evidence against him.
