Davila case all but over

KOMONews.com reports that:

The Army specialist who admits she murdered a Pierce County couple then kidnapped their baby two years ago will spend the rest of her life behind bars without the possibility of parole.

In the conclusion to the court martial of Specialist Ivette Davila, military judge Colonel Stephen R. Henley also reduced Davila’s rank, took away all pay and allowances, and gave her a dishonorable discharge from the Army.

I say all but over because with a guilty plea the legal issues on appeal would be very limited.  Knowing Judge Henley I would anticipate he did a thorough providency inquiry and that he was careful to ensure a fair sentencing hearing.
