Posted (IP: Staff) ·

A Nevada inmate who was convicted of the 1980 robbery-killing of a man for $2 is no longer eligible for the death penalty.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that the state's Supreme Court ruled that due to the erasure of Samuel Howard's sole conviction for violent crime by a New York court, he would no longer face capital punishment.

After spending nearly 40 years on death row, following the fatal shooting of Las Vegas dentist George Monahan during a robbery, it has been reported that Howard must now be re-sentenced.
