Parties stipulate to IAC at capital sentencing phase

Here is a Topeka Capital-Journal article indicating that the state and defense have agreed to a stipulation that Phillip Cheatham received ineffective assistance of counsel at the sentencing phase of his capital murder trial. We blogged about coverage of this case previously here.

[Update: here is another Topeka Capital-Journal article reporting on the different sides on IAC at the guilt phase. The article indicates that Judge Braun has until February 8, 2010 to issue a decision.]
