AZ Supreme Court scheduled to rule on death sentence appeal

August 14, 2012

Patterson was sentenced to death in 2009 in the fatal stabbing of his girlfriend in Mesa. A jury convicted Patterson of first-degree murder, and they found the 2006 killing was especially cruel and that there were no circumstances warranting a lenient sentence.
