Wyo. Supreme Court To Reconsider Sheridan Killings
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Supreme Court is set to hear arguments from lawyers representing two Wyoming teenagers serving life sentences in the home invasion slaying of a Sheridan man.
Lawyers representing Wyatt Bear Cloud and Dharminder (dar-MINN’-dur) Vir Sen are set to ask the state supreme court on Wednesday to reduce their sentences.
Bear Cloud and Vir Sen together with another defendant were convicted of murder in the August 2009 home invasion killing of Sheridan businessman Robert Ernst.
The U.S. Supreme Court last summer threw out mandatory life in prison without parole for juvenile offenders. The high court recently vacated Bear Cloud’s life sentence and sent it back to the state supreme court for reconsideration.
