HUGHES, III, PRESTON, PETITIONER
Ct Crim. App. Texas
Rehnquist, Blackmun, Stevens, O'Connor, Scalia, Kennedy, Souter, Thomas, Ginsburg.
The motion of petitioner to strike the brief in opposition is denied. The petition for a writ of certiorari is denied.
Justice Blackmun dissenting:
Adhering to my view that the death penalty cannot be imposed fairly within the constraints of our Constitution, see my dissent in Callins v. Collins, 510 U.S. , (1994), I would grant certiorari and vacate the death sentence in this case.
