Oregon Supreme Court allows trial of accused hit men
Two men accused of hiring on as hit men for a jealous husband and drug dealer will have to stand trial after the Oregon Supreme Court overturned a lower court ruling.
The Supreme Court ruled unanimously Thursday that police were justified in making the arrests based partly on a vague description of the suspects.
The man accused of hiring them, Joel Sanchez-Jacobo, was convicted last year of aggravated murder for soliciting the killing of Rodolfo Romero-Lopez and of murder in the slaying of Alejandro Sanchez-Hernandez.
Prosecutors said Sanchez-Jacobo, 31, a Mexican citizen, considered the slain men rival drug dealers who were interested in his wife.
Nothing to see here folks. Pay no attention to the horrible violence in Mexico that seems to be spreading north. Please go back to watching American Idol and ignoring the looming danger.
