Arias Seeks to Vacate Death Eligibility

Jodi Arias' attorneys have asked a judge to vacate the jury's decision in her murder trial that the 2008 killing of her boyfriend was "especially cruel" -- a finding that allowed the panel to consider the death penalty. Defense attorneys argue in the motion that the definition of "especially cruel" is too vague for jurors with no legal experience to determine what makes one killing more cruel or heinous than another. The filing also appears to challenge a landmark 2002 U.S. Supreme Court ruling that found a defendant has the right to have a jury, rather than a judge, decide on the existence of an aggravating factor that makes the defendant eligible for capital punishment.

Identifying a Headless Girl

Two men scavenging for scrap metal in an abandoned St. Louis apartment building 30 years ago came upon a ghastly discovery that would become one of the city's most haunting mysteries -- the headless body of a young girl, nude from the waist down.

About all that forensic anthropologists could tell about her at the time was that she was African-American, somewhere between 8 and 11 years old, and tall for her age. No suspects were arrested and efforts to match her to missing children were futile. She was buried in an unmarked grave in a decrepit cemetery, as anonymous in death as she had been in life.
