1. State v. Craig Szemple - Denial of post-conviction discovery for a Murder that occurred in 1975, Trial #1 in 1992 and Trial #2 in 1994 - The chilling poetic words fo the Defendant:

“My first hit was an Act of Treachery.

 The ultimate deceit.

 4 bullets in the back

 1 in the neck

 and a broken promise made at the parting of an oncoming river.”

These words - written to the Defendant’s wife, in a note revealed to the State by the wife’s father.
