Kansas Supreme Court upholds murder conviction

KSAL StaffDecember 19, 2015

The Kansas Supreme Court has upheld the capital murder conviction of a man sentenced to life in prison for shooting two people in Wichita.

Marquis J. Marshall was convicted for the 2012 deaths of 22-year-old Zachary Hunt and 79-year-old Henry Harvey.

Marshall was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole after the state chose not to seek the death penalty for the conviction.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1RtKKaP) that in a unanimous decision released Friday, the state Supreme Court rejected Marshall’s claims that the Sedgwick County District Court erred in refusing to order a competency hearing for him and that it failed to consider his request for new counsel sufficiently.
