Eaton’s Attorneys File More Court Claims
Wyoming’s only inmate on death row continues to claim he didn’t get a fair trial. Dale Wayne Eaton was convicted and sentenced to death in 2004 for raping and killing 18-year-old Lisa Marie Kimmell.
His attorneys have filed more court claims that Eaton should get a new sentencing hearing because of an error by his trial attorney and because a prosecutor didn’t disclose a working relationship he had with a key prosecution witness.
Lawyers for the state dispute both claims.
A federal judge will begin considering the petition in December.
